DepositMOre: Applying tools to increase full-text content in institutional repositories
This presentation reconsiders the conventional approach towards deposit of new content in digital repositories, by reconceptualising deposit workflow and asking how and whether we can use this to substantially increase deposit volumes. We recap the user tools from the DepositMO project, which were underpinned by the then-new SWORDv2. In contrast, deposit tools developed in DepositMOre are EPrints apps aimed at repository managers rather than end-users. We explore the use and current status of these apps, including a video deposit app and an app to upload and manage archaeology image collections, presenting initial feedback from real repository implementations. Is more content the primary target for repositories? We review the challenges facing repositories as the context for understanding the outcomes of this work and future directions.

Abstract

This presentation reconsiders the conventional approach towards deposit of new content in digital repositories, by reconceptualising deposit workflow and asking how and whether we can use this to substantially increase deposit volumes. We recap the user tools from the DepositMO project, which were underpinned by the then-new SWORDv2. In contrast, deposit tools developed in DepositMOre are EPrints apps aimed at repository managers rather than end-users. We explore the use and current status of these apps, including a video deposit app and an app to upload and manage archaeology image collections, presenting initial feedback from real repository implementations. Is more content the primary target for repositories? We review the challenges facing repositories as the context for understanding the outcomes of this work and future directions.
