  • What is eLABa?
  • Software used
  • eLABa data model in Fedora:
    • Collections
    • PIDs
    • Datastreams
    • Disseminators
  • Future plans
  • Statistics
what is elaba
What is eLABa?
  • Lithuanian Academic e-Library (eLABa) is designed for the personnel of Lithuanian research institutions who write study and research publications, that are to be submitted, archived, catalogued and presented to the readers and other systems
  • The aim of eLABa is by the use of information and communication technologies to develop favorable conditions to disseminate more quickly the newest scientific knowledge and learning material, to improve the quality of research and higher education processes, to educate e-Society and develop knowledge economy
  • eLABa is being created while developing Lithuanian Academic Libraries Network (LABT) and implementing the projects funded by European Union Structural Funds
elaba data model pid format
eLABa data model: PID format
  • Fedora object-pid = Namespace ID “:“ Object ID
  • Namespace ID: LT‑eLABa-0001, where LT – country code
  • Object ID format is different for every object type
  • For example, rules for book (B.03) PID formation:
  • More examples of object IDs:
    • B.01~2006, B.02~1995~ISSN_0359-3576, E.02~2008~D_20080904_150639-65430
    • J.04~2008~ISSN_1392-1215.N_5_85.PG_25-28, P.03~2000~D_20001002.SEQN_001.N_001
elaba data model datastreams
eLABa data model: datastreams
  • Main datastreams:
    • MARCXML – eLABaMARC, basically MARC 21 with some modifications
    • DC – Dublin Core, formed from MARCXML
    • RELS-EXT – indicates relations between same collection objects and is used for OAI-PMH to define sets and OAI-PMH ID
    • POLICY – mainly used to control access to ETDs
  • Other datastreams:
    • Have IDs of form: DS.XXX.Y.ZZ.T, where XXX – datastream type code, Y – language code and ZZ – sequence number, T – datastream type string
    • Example: DS.001.0.01.BOOK: 001 – indicates this is contents of the book, 0 – LT language, 01 – is first book contents
elaba data model datastreams1
eLABa data model: datastreams
elaba data model disseminators
eLABa data model: disseminators
  • 3 disseminatormethods for OAI-PMH:
    • getDC – for all objects
    • getMARC21 – for all objects
      • Possibleparameterlangvalues: ENG and LIT (LIT MARCXML version is for ALEPH)
    • getETD-MS – for ETD objects only
future plans
Future plans
  • Migrate from Fedora 2.2.4 to 3.x
    • Make use of content models
    • Make better use of resource index (and RELS-EXT) for fast object querying and statistics gathering
    • Utilize new efficient REST interface
  • Create WEB based application for data ingestion into Fedora
  • Create fully automatic procedures for further data processing after object ingestion into Fedora
  • Create object access and other extensive statistics gathering
  • Since 2003 till now (2011-09-07) 38 Lithuanian academic institutions have ingested 24535 eLABa data objects, from which 19437 are ETD objects (remaining 5098 are books, articles, etc.).
