Institutional Repository for CDU Whats in your bottom drawer? Ruth Quinn, Director Library and Information Access Charles Darwin University CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY

Outline of presentation What is an Institutional Repository (IR) Why does CDU need an IR? What is involved? Resources required Issues to consider Feedback CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY

What is an IR Way of managing and disseminating the Universitys digital assets by storing them in a central place, and enabling them to searched and retrieved for later use. Digital assets are items or objects or publications in digital form CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY

What is an IR cont May include research outputs, journals articles, theses, elearning objects, teaching materials, etc Involves processes around import, export, identification, storage and retrieval CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY

Why an IR for CDU? Enables staff and institutions to manage and preserve digital content, thereby deriving maximum value from it Increases the impact factor Intellectual assets consist of more than what is published in scholarly literature CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY

Why? (cont) Encourages collaboration Move to public accountability for research funding DEST likes it as a way of providing evidence for the RQF Ability to re-use digital content for different purposes: learning materials

CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY Whats involved A software system that enables easy workflow management of the process: capture, identification, retrieval, preservation Interoperability with other systems: other repositories, open standards

CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY Some examples DSpace Fedora Eprints

Hive CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY Submission process An item is submitted by a researcher to the repository using an online template developed by LIA Part of the above process will involve the author giving permission to make the item available to end-users and to

convert it as necessary for digital access and preservation purposed CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY Submission process (cont) An internal review by LIA confirms the submitter is authorized to contribute to the repository Metadata is assigned usually

this is by the author initially, augmented by LIA staff. Metadata ensures users can search/browse to find a particular item CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY Submission process (cont) Document format is transferred to a known/acceptable format if necessary

A unique document identifier and a persistent URL is assigned by LIA to ensure ongoing availability Access rules applied Item loaded into IR and made available CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY Resources required Staff: 1 x Hew 5/6: $50,000

Hardware: SAN space Software Licenses: $10,000 CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY Issues to consider Copyright SHERPA Open access vs closed access Separate repository for Learning Objects?

CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY Feedback Worthwhile? Should the Uni fund? Would you use it as a researcher: What would encourage you to use it? Is there enough unpublished material out there to warrant this? (Go on open that bottom

drawer!) CHARLES DARWIN UNIVERSITY More Feedback! What percentage of your output would already be in digital form? Appropriate for LIA to be involved?
