    1. 1. Creating a Digital library Service Model Introduction Dspace a ‘real time’ Digital Content Management System By Bharat Kumar M. Chaudhari Faculty Of Engineering and Technology, PDPU, Gandhinagar M. 94284154 Email:
    2. 2. Digital Preservation “Preservation is a critical function for any institutional repository, as organizations both large and small realize the need for built-in digital preservation tools to ensure access, storage, and management for the long-term. DSpace fulfills that responsibility admirably. The choice of which better suits an institution depends on its resources, technology support, and desire to have a heavily customizable or out-of the box solution to institutional repository and preservation needs.” -Lisa Phillips
    3. 3. Digital Preservation  Philosophy  Lots of digital material is already lost  Most digital material is at risk  Better to have it, do bit preservation than to lose it completely  Need to capture as much information as possible to support functional preservation  Cost/benefit tradeoffs
    4. 4. {Electronic} e-Institutional Repository Vs Digital Library  Institutional Repository are organized around a particular Institutional community while Digital Library may be May be built around any number of organizing principles (often topic, subject, or discipline).  Institutional Repository are dependent upon the voluntary contribution of materials by scholars for the content in their collection while Digital Library are the product of a deliberate collection development policy  Institutional Repository are mainly repositories and therefore may only offer limited user services while Digital Library are typically include an important service aspect (reference and research assistance, interpretive content or special resources).  A repository makes the intellectual output of an organization (or multiple organizations or just one department) freely and openly available. A digital library on the other hand, is a gateway to electronic resources including but not limited to: an OPAC (Online Public Access Catalogue), ebooks, ejournals (usually subscription based), bibliographic databases (e.g. CINAHL, MEDLINE, PsycINFO, Embase, Cochrane Library, Web of Science - depending on your subject areas) and citation management tools. It should also include access to online referencing and to a live librarian (real qualified person is good). I manage both a digital library and a repository so if you need more info, please contact me. It might be wise to start with a needs analysis of your clients.
    5. 5. What is DSpace    100% free open source software Based on JAVA (Web based /Web archiving) Begin federation   First Developed by MIT and HP MIT first public release   Fall 2002 DSpace Foundation October 3, 2002 & Open Source to the world - DSpace 1.0  November 4, 2002
    6. 6. What is DSpace (Count…       Scalable (Means any grid supporthardware, Cloud) Modular- like Joomla, Drupal, Moodle User Friendly Multi-user (including both searching and maintenance) Multimedia digital object enabled Platform independent (including both client and server components) interoperable
    7. 7. Federation Partners        Cambridge University (UK) Columbia University (US) Cornell University (US) Ohio State University (US) University of Rochester (US) University of Toronto (Canada) University of Washington (US)
    8. 8. What DSpace can…  Captures  Digital research material in various formats  Directly from creators (e.g. faculty)  Describes  Descriptive,  Distributes  Via  technical, rights metadata WWW, with necessary access control Preserves type : Functional Preservation
    9. 9. DSpace Offering         Large-scale, stable, managed long-term storage Support for range of digital formats depositing of multiples bite in one item Easy-to-use submission process Persistent network identifiers Access control Search and delivery interface Digital preservation services
    10. 10. Possible Content        Preprints, articles  Images Technical Reports  visual, scientific, etc. Working Papers  Audio files Conference Papers  Video files E-theses  Manuscript, Museum ArtifactsLearning Objects Datasets: statistical, geospatial Reformatted digital library collections
    11. 11. Technology Stack ApacheMaven, Tomcat, OpenSSL/mod_ssl  Java 1.3, JSP 1.2, Servlet 2.3  PostgreSQL 7, JDBC (rdbms)  CNRI Handle System 5 (persistent ids)  Lucene 1.2 (index/search)  Jena (RDF History system)  JUnit (testing), Log4j (logging)  HP/UX, Linux, Solaris, etc. 
    12. 12. Information Structure “Community" is a grouping of collections and/or "Sub-communities“ “Collection" is a group of related items in an archive. "Items" are records that describe the file(s) being archived, using the Dublin Core metadata scheme "Bundle" is a grouping of files associated with an item "Bitstreams" are the individual files grouped together in a bundle and associated with an item. (e.g. license text, jpegs, tiffs, pdfs, doc, xml)
    13. 13. Information Structure
    14. 14. Information Model Communities DSpace system Archival Storage SCHOOLS Metadata (Database) DEPARTMENTS LABS Submission Subsystem Search/Browse Subsystem Web User Interface SCHOOL PROGRAM LAB USER CENTER CENTERS USER PROGRAMS Collection Item Item Item Item Collection DEPARTMENT Collection Collection USER
    15. 15. Standards  Qualified Dublin Core   Crosswalk from MARC       based on Library Application Profile based on Library of Congress crosswalk Minimally effective preservation metadata METS-encoded OAIS AIP in bitstore Support for collection/community-specific schemas in development (SIMILE) OAI-PMH v 2.0 (Open Archive’s Initiative Protocol for metadata harvesting) UNICODE Compliant
    16. 16. Administering DSpace      Anonymous Users (anybody) Members, who wish to subscribe to a collection (one can not subscribe to communities). Also called E-person in DSpace Submitters (authors), who submit their publications to a collection (they should be members and have been authorized to submit). Reviewers - members who are authorized to review submissions. They can either accept or reject submissions). Normally, they are subject specialists Metadata Editors – who validate the metadata. Normally, they are library professionals
    17. 17. Administering DSpace (Count…    Collection Administrators. In a large digital repository collection administration can be delegated various E-groups. They can choose the reviewers, metadata editors among members and decide the collection policy They are different from DSpace administrators, who have the overall responsibility and power. A kind of super-user
    18. 18. E-Groups     DSpace calls the reviewers, metadata editors, collection administrators as E-groups It means, there can be more than one eperson (member) in any list of reviewers or metadata editors etc. Each e-group can be associated with one or more collections A member can be placed in none or more than one e-group
    19. 19. DSpace Administrator (cont,..  Can add local (non-standard) elements to Dublin Core  Can add new bit stream formats  Customization of DSpace Screens  Customization of E-mail alerts  Modification of License for submission
    20. 20. DSpace Administrator (cont,..  Can add local (non-standard) elements to Dublin Core  Can add new bit stream formats  Customization of DSpace Screens  Customization of E-mail alerts  Modification of License for submission
