Pan-European DR Infrastructure

repository inventory in europe
Repository Inventory in Europe
  • Results from ~120 institutions with DRs
    • General status on national level infrastructure
    • Coverage/visibility of academic output
    • Textual vs. other material
    • Open access (88%)
    • Repository technologies used
    • User services provided
technical standards
Technical Standards
  • Analyzes current implementations of interoperability standards in DR's.
  • Identifies limitations of the standards currently used, and looks into the necessary future development of existing or new standards to resolve difficulties
  • Describes other standards that are used (or being developed) in different environments
  • Anticipates new challenges:
    • Guidelines for OAI-PMH implementations
    • Multiple interfaces to repositories
    • Challenge of relating entities from multiple domains
    • Content based-services
