Repositories used to be fairly monolithic systems, with a single object store, a tailored content model, and a dedicated application on top. The federation protocol OAI-PMH for content aggregation is an exception to this. However, we are still far away from an open repository environment, in which repositories interact on all levels with other agents (e.g. other repositories, added-value services, registries). This paper creates a more fine-grained view on repository federation and analyses… 

Figures from this paper

A distributed architecture for efficient Web service discovery
TLDR
DREAM (Distributed Registry by ExAMple): a publish/subscribe-based solution to integrate existing, different registries, along with a match-making approach to ease the publication and retrieval of services, fostering the interoperability among registry technologies and supports UDDI, ebXML Registry, and other registries.
Diversity and Interoperability of Repositories in a Grid Curation Environment
TLDR
The WissGrid project aims to provide cross-disciplinary data curation tools for a grid environment by adapting repository concepts and technologies to the existing D-Grid e Infrastructure, and respects diversity of systems, and aims to improve interoperability of the interfaces between those systems.
Metadata quality issues in learning repositories
TLDR
This dissertation proposes a set of methods that can be deployed throughout the lifecycle of a repository to ensure that metadata generated from content providers are of high quality and validated the MQACP approach by applying it on two cases of a Cultural and a Research Federation of repositories.
Pundit: augmenting web contents with semantics
TLDR
Pundit aims at enabling scholars to produce meaningful machine- readable data that captures the semantics of their annotations, by providing a customizable annotation environment, and easy ways of integrating with existing Web archives or libraries.
OpenAIRE - Building a collaborative Open Access infrastructure for European researchers
TLDR
How a Europe-wide open access service can be established through the work of a successful network of European open access contacts and by effective communication with a range of stakeholders is highlighted.
A possible solution for digital preservation of e-government: A centralised repository within a cloud computing framework
TLDR
The mapping of six factors of digital preservation to three levels ofdigital preservation shows that using appropriate steps supported by suitable strategies and policies enables the public administration sector to take advantage of modern information technology and solve the demanding and critical problem of digital preserved.
Version Early version , also known as preprint Link to publication record in King ' s Research Portal
TLDR
This paper analyses the results of the technical and scientific work in the DARIAH preparatory phase, a European infrastructure for digital arts and humanities, and presents the design decision made and proof-of-concept demonstrators and experiments.
Chemical information matters: an e-Research perspective on information and data sharing in the chemical sciences.
TLDR
The concepts of preservation, curation, provenance, discovery, and access are considered in the context of the research lifecycle, and the role of metadata is focused on, particularly the ontologies on which the emerging chemical Semantic Web will depend.
What are we talking about when we talk about sustainability of digital archives, repositories and libraries?
TLDR
Sustainability is a multi‐faceted concept, and the prevalence of nine codes, representing different facets of sustainability, in the texts is explored, and it is found most authors discussed sustainability in terms of technology, management, relationships or revenue.
A nine dimensional framework for digital cultural heritage organizational sustainability
TLDR
How library and information science as a field operationalizes the concept of organizational sustainability for managing digital resources, projects and infrastructures such as digital libraries and repositories over time is reported on.

Fedora: an architecture for complex objects and their relationships
TLDR
The Fedora architecture is an extensible framework for the storage, management, and dissemination of complex objects and the relationships among them, providing the foundation for a variety of end-user applications for digital libraries, archives, institutional repositories, and learning object systems.
REST-based management of loosely coupled services
TLDR
This paper proposes an approach of decentralized service management based on distributed configuration management and service process co-ordination, making use RESTful access to configuration information and ATOM-based distribution of updates as a novel foundation for service management processes.
Digital Preservation Service Provider Models for Institutional Repositories: Towards Distributed Services
TLDR
The evolution of a series of models that have informed progress towards this conception of flexible and distributed preservation services for IRs are described, which could range from comprehensive 'black-box' preservation to pick-and-mix lightweight Web-based services that build on the common starting point, format identification.
aDORe: a modular, standards-based Digital Object Repository
This paper describes the aDORe repository architecture designed and implemented for ingesting, storing, and accessing a vast collection of Digital Objects at the Research Library of the Los Alamos
Data management and the curation continuum: how the Monash experience is informing repository relationships
TLDR
This paper explores how one institution has responded to the need to provide management solutions that accommodate different object types, uses and users and introduces three key concepts of curation continuum.
Open ehumanities digital ecosystems and the role of resource registries
TLDR
Two prerequisites for successful interoperability between DEs in the field, namely loosely-coupled services and the visibility of resources are studied, and a reference ontology for eHumanities resources is proposed, both services and documents alike.
Data Information Service based on Open Archives Initiative Protocols and Apache Lucene
TLDR
A generic portal system architecture suitable for geoscientific data portals and makes it possible to define searchable fields in several data formats by XPath allowing full text queries on all types of fields including numerical ranges.
DRIVER: Building the Network for Accessing Digital Repositories Across Europe
TLDR
The current state of institutional repositories does not fully support expectations for search and retrieve bibliographic records, and the resource itself is sometimes hidden behind several intermediate pages, obscured by authorisation procedures, not fully presented, or not retrievable at all.
Why is the web loosely coupled?: a multi-faceted metric for service design
TLDR
Coupling is no longer a one-dimensional concept with loose coupling found somewhere in between tight coupling and no coupling, and the metric is applied to real-world examples in order to support and improve the design process of service-oriented systems.
DCMI Abstract Model
TLDR
This document specifies an abstract model for DCMI metadata [DCMI], to provide a reference model against which particular DC encoding guidelines can be compared and facilitates the development of better mappings and translations between different syntaxes.
