LYRASIS and DuraSpace Announce Merger: Expanding the Capacity of the Global Scholarly and Scientific Research Ecosystem

DSpace news - ოთხ, 13/03/2019 - 16:38

Atlanta, GA – March 13, 2019 – LYRASIS and DuraSpace are pleased to announce that by July 1, 2019, they will officially merge to create one dynamic organization empowered to help drive scalable change, new technologies and vital services.

This merger will create a new model for collaboration, innovation and development in the landscape of academic, research, and public libraries, galleries, archives, and museums. The merged organization will leverage its expertise, reach, and capacity to create and build new programs, services and technologies that enable durable, persistent access to data and services. The LYRASIS and DuraSpace communities will continue to benefit from the existing programs and services that they receive from each organization.

The newly merged organization will be an on-ramp to a worldwide collaborative community of more than 4,000 institutions and nine open source, community-supported technology programs across six continents. In addition, it will build capacity in the scholarly ecosystem through open technologies, services, funding opportunities, expertise, training, and support.

Both organizations bring world class experts and a common vision for the future of knowledge as it is used across their overlapping memberships. They share a common drive to provide end-to-end solutions that reflect the governance, fair pricing, technical road map, and community expectations of their memberships.

Erin Tripp, DuraSpace’s Executive Director explains, “We found that our two organizations were working more and more toward similar goals such as stewarding community-supported and open source initiatives in the scholarly ecosystem. We each observed a growing need for innovation, research and development, and thought leadership. I feel strongly that by working together, we can have a greater impact on our communities.”

Robert Miller, CEO of LYRASIS, says of the merger, “Over the past three years we have tested and launched a thought leadership and program development initiative that combines collective risk mitigation and community engagement with milestone-based funding. The rapid adoption of this by 10% of our membership has confirmed to us that this technology platform and service focus is more critical now than ever before. Leveraging DuraSpace’s global institution base with our strategic end-to-end solution focus will be a substantial win for our members.”

LYRASIS and DuraSpace have traditionally delivered high-quality content and cultural heritage solutions to their diverse memberships and will continue to do so. All services, programs, purchases and subscriptions through LYRASIS and DuraSpace will continue without interruption. No action needs to be taken at this time by any members to ensure continuity of service.

This merger strengthens each organization’s core competencies and offers new opportunities for expansion. LYRASIS will be the public name of the merged organization and led by Robert Miller. Within LYRASIS, a newly-created DuraSpace Community Supported Programs division led by Erin Tripp will be the future home of all existing DuraSpace Open Source Software projects and all LYRASIS community supported programs including ArchivesSpace and CollectionSpace, as well as DSpace, Fedora, and VIVO.

About LYRASIS

LYRASIS, a not-for-profit membership organization of more than 1000 libraries, museums, and archives supports enduring access to our shared academic, scientific and cultural heritage through leadership in open technologies, content services, digital solutions and collaboration with archives, libraries, museums and knowledge communities worldwide.

About DuraSpace 

DuraSpace is an independent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded in 2009 providing leadership and innovation for open technologies that promote durable, persistent access to digital data. We collaborate with academic, scientific, cultural, technology, and research communities by supporting projects and advancing services to help ensure that current and future generations have access to our collective digital heritage.

The value of regional user Groups for a global community: Collaboration Update from Concytec and the Peruvian DSpace User Group

DSpace news - ოთხ, 20/02/2019 - 20:40

The Peruvian Council of Science, Technology and Technological Innovation (Concytec) has been collaborating closely with DuraSpace to advance and promote Open Access to scholarly publications in Peru.

After the successful completion of the first DSpace & DSpace-CRIS Workshop held in July 2018–probably the most attended DSpace workshop to date–and the incorporation of Concytec as a platinum member of DuraSpace in September, this joint effort has given birth to the Peruvian DSpace User Group, a vibrant community of research managers, librarians and IT staff from different institutions all around the country, working in support of scholarly communication. Following the membership, Concytec now is in the Leadership Group of DSpace, representing the needs, ideas and visions of the Peruvian community at the governance level.

Since the beginning of the National Network of Open Access Repositories in 2013, Concytec recommended DSpace as the software platform to support the now more than 160 institutional repositories integrated into the network. In order to have accurate records reflecting Peruvian users, Concytec lead the initiative that supported the update of the DuraSpace registry. Over 120 DSpace Peruvian installations were added and 43 existing ones were updated. To date, the registry reports a total of 171 instances of DSpace in Peru.

To promote the exchange of information and experiences in the community, the User Group has set a wiki page, a dedicated slack channel, a mailing list, and is already organizing both virtual and in-person meetings.

The introductory event of the community was a webinar held on December 4, 2018. More than one hundred participants attended a presentation given by Erin Tripp, Executive Director of DuraSpace, and César Olivares, Sub Director of Management of Information and Knowledge of Concytec, who shared with them the vision pursued by the group as well as the communication and collaboration channels. In the same event, the group attended a presentation from a renowned Peruvian librarian, Libio Huaroto from Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas, who elaborated on the best practices in the use of persistent identifiers in institutional repositories.

On January 2, 2019, Joan Caparrós, from CSUC (Spain), was invited to present a second webinar of the group, about the technical details for the implementation of the handle service in DSpace. Webinar recordings and presentation slides for all events are available at the wiki page of the group.

In the meantime, a lot of chat and community support has been going on in the slack channel, which has become one of the most active ones in the Spanish language. Satisfaction surveys have been conducted and are being used to gather the needs of the community members and plan for the next activities and collaboration initiatives.

It is also noteworthy that the slack channel has enabled different collaboration opportunities with the fellow Brazilian DSpace User Group, with some users sharing in both communities.

On February 22, 2019 a third webinar is scheduled about the implementation of DSpace in cloud services, by Luis Maguiña, Technologies Coordination at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.  We welcome the community to attend this event. Pre-registration is required and is available here.  Please note if the session fills up a recording will be made available on the wiki page.

Introducing CAP (Curators’ Administrative Platform) from Texas A&M University Libraries

DSpace news - ხუთ, 07/02/2019 - 19:05

An institutional repository’s effectiveness in showcasing heterogenous content depends largely
on an appropriate selection of metadata schemata. Specialized structures and fields are
required to faithfully depict the context and type of audiovisual media and special collections.
The metadata associated with digital assets are fundamental to the repository’s function, and
they allow users to search, sort, share, attribute, represent, and track the provenance of
content. Librarians often term a specialized set of metadata fields from various schemata a
“metadata application profile”.

The Applications Development team at Texas A&M University Libraries has prototyped an
application called CAP (Curators’ Administrative Platform) to enable dynamic customization of
metadata application profiles for Fedora repositories and to facilitate the basic interactions
with the Fedora REST API (LDP, Fixity, Versioning, and Transactions) through a clean, intuitive
modern UI. CAP also includes viewers to render image resources in the browser with <img>tags
or with OpenSeadragon and a IIIF Image Server. The A&M team includes developers James Creel,
Jeremy Huff, Kevin Day, Ryan Laddusaw, Jason Savell, and William Welling; and managers Doug Hahn
and Mike Bolton.

CAP is a thin layer on top of the Fedora Repository platform which allows administrators to
designate URIs for RDF metadata namespaces over the Internet, parse the namespaces using
the Apache Jena library (https://jena.apache.org), and select specific fields for use in a given IR.
In this way, administrators can craft application profiles appropriate for specific content types
or collections in a Fedora repository.

Architecturally, CAP consists of an Angular.js frontend to a Spring Boot webserver. The
webserver persists information about IR locations and schemata and performs the calls to
remote namespace URIs and Fedora REST endpoints. Interactions with underlying Fedora
repositories are handled with the Fedora Java client.

The Applications Development team at A&M would ideally like to see the CAP webservice as
“One API to rule them all” by making CAP usable with other repository platforms, but
acknowledges this as a future goal that would likely entail compromises in homogenizing
different repository interfaces and data models.

The open source code for CAP is available on GitHub at https://github.com/TAMULib/Cap . Prior
to a formal release, the developers would appreciate feedback from any community members
willing to stand-up the software, fix bugs, or commit code. Please contact James Creel
jcreel@library.tamu.edu with question or suggestions.

CALL for Proposals–Spring 2019 euroCRIS Spring Membership Meeting

DSpace news - ორშ, 28/01/2019 - 20:22

From Pablo de Castro, euroCRIS Secretariat

As our Spring 2019 membership meeting at CSC (IT Center for Science) in Espoo/Helsinki approaches, this message is a call for proposals for presentations at the event. We’re currently working on the event website and on the programme, which will see some innovations with regard to previous editions. The dates for theSpring 2019 membership meeting are May 27-29, 2019.

One of these innovations will be a session for 10-min lightning talks that allow smaller findings and local experiences to be reported and questions to be raised. In order to make sure we have sufficient input for holding such a session, this is to request proposals for this kind of short presentations (besides our standard request for regular contributions about 25-30 mins long to the Jostein Hauge session).

We wish to invite the international CRIS community to send in proposals for either session on any of the following topics:

– Case studies in CRIS implementation & operation, with emphasis on new platforms and new configurations for pre-existing platforms
– Research Information infrastructures on a national and international level
– Cross-system interoperability: exchange and reuse of research information from existing resources
– Research information for funders
– Output and performance: trends in research assessment, rankings and bench-marking
– Evaluation of scientific organisations as cultural, societal or economic assets
– Value, impact and outcomes of universities
– Semantic approaches, data mining and profiling in the interpretation of research information
– The (worldwide) uptake of CRIS Systems by various stakeholders
– Identification schemes and standards
– Linked Open Data for research information
– Use cases in the application of CERIF
– Current trends in Open Access and Research Data Management and Archiving
– Meaning of CRISs for Open Science
– (Possible) Role of CRISs in creating FAIR data infrastructures

Given both the venue of the meeting and the lively and active RIM landscape and community in Northern Europe, we hope to be able to welcome a certain number of contributions from the Nordic countries.

Please send us a short 200-word abstract for your lightning talk proposal (300 words for a contribution to the Jostein Hauge session) here. Suggestions for contributions will be accepted until the end of March.
