Introduction to cclrc
Introduction to CCLRC Repository in a UK Scientific Research Organisation

  • Council for the Central Laboratory of the Research Council.

  • Sites at Daresbury Lab., Rutherford Appleton Lab. & Chilbolton

  • Remit:

    • Provision of large scale scientific facilities

    • Knowledge transfer

    • Public understanding of science

  • Publications are an indicator of scientific value

What is epubs
What is ePubs? Repository in a UK Scientific Research Organisation

  • Central repository of scientific and technical publications

  • Externally accessible since May 2004

  • Figures: >21000 metadata records from 1965 onwards, approx 400 full text

  • Managed and funded by LIS as part of our strategic development plan

Design aims
Design Aims Repository in a UK Scientific Research Organisation

  • Tight integration with corporate processes & procedures

  • Light-weight input workflow

  • Consideration of developer skills

    In-house development would be the most effective means of delivering these aims

Work

is embodied in

Expression

is exemplified by

Manifestation

Item

Data model

  • Starting point: IFLS’s Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records

  • Additional input from formalised Dublin Core, ONIX for Serials and BibTex

Functionality
Functionality Repository in a UK Scientific Research Organisation

  • Simple four screen input workflow

  • Simple & advanced searches and nine browse indices

  • OAI-PMH interface

  • Publishers DOIs added to records

  • CCLRC authors linked to corporate identity

Information environment
Information environment Repository in a UK Scientific Research Organisation

  • Open Access principle: The outputs of publicly funded research should be freely available

    • Will benefit researchers: wider exposure

  • Evolving journal article delivery

    • Effect on the Library and Information Service's budget

    • Access to information for researchers

  • Performance indicators (c.f. UK RAE)

Challenges
Challenges Repository in a UK Scientific Research Organisation

  • Rights awareness within CCLRC

  • Encouraging self-deposit

  • Retaining a version that can be self-deposited

  • Changing self-deposit cultures within areas such as Particle Physics

Future developments
Future developments Repository in a UK Scientific Research Organisation

  • OA Publicity

  • Digitisation programme for CCLRC Technical Reports

  • Software enhancements

  • Pursuing linking between scientific data and the publications that result from it.

  • Adding value

Conclusions
Conclusions Repository in a UK Scientific Research Organisation

  • http://epubs.cclrc.ac.uk

  • ePubs is an important strategic development for CCLRC LIS

  • Placing it within the organisation’s processes is very important

  • Adding retrospective data increases take-up in the present

  • Makes scientific knowledge easier to locate
