Abstract [en]

Recently the technological and organizational infrastructures of institutional repositories have been questioned. For example the British so-called Finch report  from last summer argued that further development, as well as higher standards of accessibility of repositories, are needed in order to make them better integrated and interoperable to ultimately bring greater use by both authors and readers. Not only the technical frameworks and presumably low usage levels are criticized but also the lack of “clear policies on such matters as the content they will accept, the uses to which it may be put, and the role that they will play in preservation”. The report concludes that: “In practice patterns of deposit are patchy”.

As in the UK, today, all universities and university colleges in Sweden, except a couple of very small and specialized ones, do have an institutional repository. A majority (around 80%) are working together on a co-operative basis within the DiVA Publishing System with the Electronic Publishing Centre at Uppsala University Library acting as the technical and organizational hub. Because the system is jointly funded, and the members contribute according to their size, it has been possible even for smaller institutions with limited resources to run a repository with exactly the same functionalities as the biggest universities.

In this article we want to demonstrate the ever-increasing importance of institutional repositories in Sweden. Starting more than a decade ago the DiVA Consortium has, for some time, been addressing the problems now raised by the Finch report in a number of areas.

Abstract [sv]

Vid ett antal lärosäten i Sverige har lokala system för att redovisa det egna lärosätets vetenskapliga publicering (publiceringsdatabaser) redan tagits i drift eller håller på att utvecklas. Uppgifterna i dessa system ligger i de flesta fall till grund för den redovisning av vetenskaplig publicering som Utbildningsdepartementet numera efterfrågar. För detta ändamål, och för eventuellt andra jämförande studier, är det viktigt att data anges på ett enhetligt sätt. Detta är även förutsättningen för att ett informationsutbyte vid exempelvis en gemensam exponering av svensk vetenskaplig publicering skall kunna möjliggöras.

Därför har representanter för en del av dessa lärosäten fått i uppdrag att inom delprojekt 1 (DP 1) inom Samordning av den svenska högskolans elektroniska publicering (SVEP) utarbeta ett förslag till gemensamma riktlinjer för dessa publiceringsdatabaser.

Dessa riktlinjer syftar till att ange vilka uppgifter som minst ska vara med vid beskrivningen av en publikation samt till att få en enhetlig klassificering vad gäller publikationstyp och ämnesområde.

Förslag till utökningar av minimiformatet ges också under de olika elementen i beskrivingsformatet. Dessa utökningar motsvarar i princip en fullständig beskrivningsnivå.

Abstract [en]

The goal of the DiVA project is to develop a workflow where information from the original document created by the author can be reused to extract metadata for various purposes.

There are two ways to submit an item and store the metadata in the system:

1. using a template (MS Word, Open Office, Star Office, LaTeX)

2. updating through the DiVA Manager application

In both cases metadata are converted to XML in the DiVA Document Format and stored in the DiVA system.

Metadata can be generated from the DiVA Document Format in many different formats: currently in Dublin Core (HTML-text and XML-RDF), TEI-Header, Endnote and Reference Manager, and MARC 21. All records are also presented in unqualified Dublin Core and MARC XML to support harvesting by OAI-PMH service providers.

A workflow has been created where the information, originally created by the author, forms the basis for the bibliographical description of the record in the Swedish National Library system as well as in the local library system at Uppsala University Library.

The record is transmitted in MARC XML format to the Royal Library in Stockholm and converted to MARC 21 "tape format" for import into LIBRIS, the national library system and, after adding local information such as holdings, exported to the local system. Records can also be downloaded directly from the DiVA web site in MARC 21 "tape format" (ISO 2709), as well as MARC XML format, for use in local library systems.

Each item in the DiVA archive is assigned a unique, persistent Uniform Resource Name and National Bibliographic Number.

In addition to the delivery of metadata to the National Library, full-text files (currently in PDF together with a DiVA Document Format file containing all archiving metadata) will also be delivered to support long-term preservation.

Abstract [en]

DiVA, a publishing system developed and maintained by the DiVA Project team within the Electronic Publishing Centre at Uppsala University Library, treats the electronic copy of a document as the "digital master" for both electronic and print versions and uses data originally entered by the document author as the basis for creation, reuse, and enhancement of all metadata. Each document is assigned a persistent identifier and then the document is stored, along with a checksum, in the local depository - known as the DiVA Archive. A depository copy of each document is preserved in the DiVA long-term archive and is sent to the national library - the Royal Library in Stockholm for long-term preservation as well.

The system is built on open standards and recommendations. Metadata is stored in the DiVA Document Format, a rich, locally developed schema. Transformations of this schema provide metadata in a variety of other formats and support various metadata services, including harvesting via the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH).

At present, the DiVA system is used by five universities in Sweden and one in Denmark. Publications from these institutions are available through a common interface, known as the DiVA portal.

In this article we describe the current status of the DiVA system, the system's functionality and project plans for future development. We discuss strategies employed and decisions made that led to current solutions to development challenges. Some parts of the DiVA system - for example, publishing workflow, DiVA document format and solutions supporting long-term preservations - are highlighted.

Abstract [en]

One of the objectives of the DiVA project is to explore the possibility of using XML as a format for long-term preservation. For this reason, the practical use of XML in different parts of the system was evaluated before deciding on the design.

The DiVA Document Format - defined by an XML schema - has been developed to describe the inter-relationships amongst the various data elements and processes, and to support long-term preservation of the actual documents.

XML Schema provides a means for defining the structure, content and semantics of XML documents. It is an XML based alternative to the XML Document Type Definition (DTD). Because one of the primary reasons for using XML was to support long-term preservation, the most popular DTDs for documents: DocBook and TEI were evaluated. Limitations regarding metadata descriptions were found in both of these DTDs, so the decision to develop a new structure for DiVA, using XML schema, was made. This schema combines the DocBook Schema (derived from the DocBook DTD) for the textual parts of the document with the internal schema for all metadata (bibliographic and administrative data).

Using the DiVA Document Format for content management and inter-process communication, several applications were developed. Some of their purposes are essential for long-term preservation:

Make persistent National Bibliographic Numbers (NBN) available for the URN resolution service at the Royal Library in Stockholm available.

Send MARC21 records in MARC-XML to the National Library.

Create archival file packages for long-term preservation, checksum them, store them in the DiVA Archive and send a copy of them to the Swedish Royal Library.

Currently the file-archives for long-term preservation contain the original full-text file in various formats and the DiVA Document Format file, which contains all the metadata about the document. Furthermore the DiVA Document Format file contains all parts of the full-text file that can be converted into XML. In the future it might be possible to transfer the whole full-text into XML, in which case the file-archives would contain only DiVA Document Format files.
