Call for Abstracts
2nd European Workshop on the use of Digital Object Repository Systems in
Digital Libraries (DORSDL2)
September 18, 2008, Aarhus, Denmark.
Organised in conjunction with the 12th European Conference On Research And
Advanced Technology For Digital Libraries (ECDL 2008
Digital libraries and digital repositories are - in many ways - two sides of
the same coin. This workshop brings together researchers and practitioners
from both fields, and aims to transfer knowledge and connect. The target
group are primarily repository researchers, developers, and managers. The
workshop addresses both experiences and novel concepts with a technological
and/or organisational stance.
Issues in the scope of the workshop include:
* Digital object models, behaviors, profiles, and prototypes.
* Relationships between digital objects.
* Interoperability mechanisms - e.g. OAI Object Reuse and Exchange.
* Workflows, cataloging, batch ingestions, versioning, audit trails,
etc. - critical digital library mechanisms.
* Examples of digital object repository systems at work in digital
* Requirements, models and support for curation and preservation of
* Storage layer (e.g. SAN, grid integration).
* Evaluations and comparisons of digital object repository systems with
respect to extensibility, flexibility, scalability, preservation, etc.
Digital repository systems and/or digital library systems of interest
* FEDORA, Flexible Extensible Digital Object Repository Architecture
* DSpace, Open Source Digital Repository System
* EPrints, Eprints Open Access Repository
* aDORe, A Modular, Standards-Based Digital Object Repository
Note that the above lists should not be considered restrictive. The final
program will reflect the most interesting issues for this community.
The workshop aims to cover a variety of practical digital library
development issues and how their resolution can (or cannot) be carried out
in the context of the digital object repository at hand.
This workshop proposal is related to a workshop at ECDL 2006: Digital Object
Repository Systems in Digital Libraries, Alicante, Spain, see
http://www.lib.uoa.gr/dorsdl/ . Issues that have more emphasis in 2008:
* Digital Object Repository Interoperability
* Digital Object relationships
* The storage layer
* Access control in the access layer
Submission of Extended Abstracts
