Library staff have done a lot of work in backfilling metadata and also do copyright checking for full text papers, we are working with staff across our four colleges to address any gaps and ensure we are as comprehensive as possible moving forward (and capturing the full text); students deposit their PhDs into the Theses Service.

Institutional context

  • Department with lead responsibility for repository: Library. The Library leads on our repository but works in partnership with the Research Office (for funder data etc), the IT Department (which hosts our servers, provides support and backups) and our Colleges/Academic colleagues (who have the content).
  • Integration / plan for integration with research management systems: Already integrated. Enlighten pulls funding data from the research system (marked "publicity yes") and we have browse views for funder data - and a link from our research system (bespoke) to publications in the repository.
  • Commercial CRIS system:No
  • Which one?:
  • Bids for external funding: Yes. Range of JISC funded projects including DAEDALUS (2002-5), Enrich (2009-10), Enquire (2010).
  • More about the repository: Embedded into the institution, acts as a University publications database and is actively used for REF preparation e.g. Key wins for us in the last couple of years have been integration with local login credentials, clearly linking our authors to their publications and the work with the research system We have recently linked a "Requests for corrections" form to our University helpdesk system (Supportworks) to enable us to more effectively manage updates and changes to records (and full text) in the repository.
