Have you done any tests to see the percentage of your institution's output that this workflow would successfully deal with in practice?


Hi Les - with respect to % of output the workflow would deal with I would expect the following: metadata only (100% - library staff do this and is largely done now); publisher copy deposit allowed (80% of items in this category - an estimate based on the number of publishers not in Sherpa); pre/post-print deposit required (70% - an estimate based on current processes we are implementing to assist faculty with adding content). These are currently estimates, as we are in process with 2 and 3 in particular. These are based on a couple of faculty we are working with now, so are not yet hard numbers - I will post firm numbers as we do more of these.

This also does not discuss the deposit of raw research data, which we are also starting to work on. I don't expect to have any good numbers on this for 6-12 months, but I suspect it would be in the 10-20% mark for newer publications.

Has there been any recent developments with RIB - Repository in a Box or has it been abandoned?


Hi Allegra - the RIB model has been released with our open source project, Islandora (http://islandora.ca/). The full set if functionality has been made available in our Institutional Repository solution pack and can be downloaded as a VirtualBox image for testing or via the code repository (http://fedora-commons.org/confluence/display/ISLANDORA/Islandora). You can also see some of the functionality at our IslandScholar site (http://islandscholar.ca/).

We will be releasing more service packs in the coming months, including a version 2 of the RIB, or institutional repository, solution.
