In trying to populate a repository it can be more successful to concentrate on encouraging researchers to deposit their recent publications rather than asking them to deposit all their publications to date. Many researchers will have difficulty finding copies of their older publications and this may cause them to give up searching even for the more recent publications.

Try to find researchers who are willing promote the repository to their colleagues, the message is often stronger when it comes from a researcher rather than a repository manager or librarian.

Highlight the successes of the repository. Use download or other statistics to show how often publications in the repository are accessed. Information like this can make good articles for inclusion in your institution's newsletters etc.

Embargoed papers:
Many repositories accept papers with embargoes. Researchers become frustrated if they try to access an article through a repository and find it is not available. Hence it is useful if embargoed papers can be 'hidden' until the embargo expires. The %newwin%[[http://e-thesis.sharelab.cq2.org/upload.view/ETD-dspace-embargo-handler.pdf |Leiden Tool]],  was developed by the University of Leiden for their DSpace repository and allows embargoed papers to be 'hidden' until the embargo expires.

Researchers and other users of digital information systems have high expectations for the provision of digital content. Retrieval should be fast, direct, and versatile. Ideally, retrieval of full text should be just one click away. The current state of institutional repositories does not fully support these expectations. While many valuable services have been established to search and retrieve bibliographic records (metadata), the resource itself is sometimes hidden behind several intermediate pages; obscured by authorization procedures; not fully presented; or not retrievable at all.

DRIVER approaches this challenge by harvesting and processing the aggregated data and by working with service providers and developers of leading repository software. Repository managers can assist DRIVER by ensuring that their repositories are compliant with the DRIVER Guidelines.

to:
Are metadata-only records an issue for repositories in other countries?

RESPONSE: While I don't have any figures at hand, my impression is that the issue is essentially the same in other European countries. However, I don't think the decisive question is really whether or not a full text is in the repository, but whether or not it is accessible to the researcher. If content is OA, it should be possible to provide the same kind of one-click access to remote sources that exists for locally stored material. The real problem is content that is either not OA or not digital. As a researcher who manages almost all his research and reading digitally, I find references to non-digital sources increasingly frustrating, but clearly that's not really an issue that DRIVER or the OA community can solve.
The essential problem with non-OA content (and I know this doesn't apply to the repositories we are talking about here, as they are probably OA-only) is really that the facility helping me with retrieval (library catalogue, Google Scholar etc) doesn't "know" whether or not I'll have access to a given resource. That exact point was brought up last month at the PKP conference in Vancouver. Someone asked Anurag Acharya, the GS lead developer, if it wouldn't be possible to somehow discern between accessible and inaccessible search results. Anurag said that because it can't be determined with certainty whether or not a user will have access, GS takes the inclusive approach and shows sources where the full text may be unavailable, which is a frustrating experience for the researcher.
What is needed is a flag in the DOI and URN of a resource that indicates whether it is freely accessible. This information can only be reliably provided by the publisher, anything else would be incredibly tedious. Having a lot of meta-data-only records in your repository is fine as long as the user has access to everything. To him it won't really make a difference where the resource is stored.

RESEARCHERS ASKED FOR THEIR OPINION

The DRIVER Search service is due to go live in testing phase later this month. The European research community is being asked to participate in a usability survey of the new service. The survey is being led by the University of Ghent and offers researchers a chance to make a significant contribution to the development of this service.
Please let your academics know about this survey and contact mailto:info@driver-support.eu for further details.

Across the EU the DRIVER Inventory Study found that of the repositories surveyed, the most frequently used repository software packages were GNU Eprints, DSpace, and OPUS.
to:
The [[http://www.driver-support.eu/en/guidelines.html | DRIVER Guidelines]] are based on the DINI certification in Germany and DARE guidelines in the Netherlands with requirements specific to those networks removed. DRIVER partners involved in other repository networks, such as HAL in France and SHERPA in the UK, provided additional input to ensure that the DRIVER Guidelines are suitable for implementation by the entire European repository community.

Researchers and other users of digital information systems have high expectations for the provision of digital content. Retrieval should be fast, direct, and versatile. Ideally, retrieval of full text should be just one click away. The current state of institutional repositories does not fully support these expectations. While many valuable services have been established to search and retrieve bibliographic records (metadata), the resource itself is sometimes hidden behind several intermediate pages; obscured by authorization procedures; not fully presented; or not retrievable at all.

DRIVER approaches this challenge by harvesting and processing the aggregated data and by working with service providers and developers of leading repository software. Repository managers can assist DRIVER by ensuring that their repositories are compliant with the DRIVER Guidelines.

Across the EU the %newwin%[[http://www.driver-support.eu/documents/DRIVER Inventory study 2007.pdf |DRIVER Inventory study ]]

METADATA-ONLY RECORDS- problems and potential

In the UK very few repositories are full text only i.e. do not have any metadata-only records. The inclusion of metadata-only records causes difficulties for search services who find it difficult to distinguish between records that link to full text and those that do not. The retrieval of metadata-only records by searches is frustrating and disappointing for researchers.

However the benefits of including metadata-only records must not be overlooked. Metadata-only records can allow the repository to act as a complete record of the research output of individual academics or of an institution. In the UK many repositories are now accepting metadata-only records to help with %newwin%[[http://www.rae.ac.uk/ |RAE]] process.

This issue is addressed by the DRIVER Guidelines through the inclusion of full text sets which will allow search and other service providers to distinguish between metadata-only records and those that link to full text.

Are metadata-only records an issue for repositories in other countries?
