Interoperability Across Repositories

Bekaert, Jeroen and Sompel, Herbert van de (2006) Augmenting interoperability across scholarly repositories. Report.
Under guidance of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI), the Digital Library Federation (DLF), the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and Microsoft, a meeting was held aimed at identifying concrete steps that could be taken to augment interoperability across heterogeneous scholarly repositories. The specific goal of the meeting was to try and reach a common understanding regarding a data model and a limited set of core, protocol-based repository interfaces that would allow services and downstream applications to interact with heterogeneous repositories in a consistent manner. Such repository interfaces include interfaces that support locating, identifying, harvesting, obtaining and depositing compound digital objects.
