Hi

If you're interested in implementing the SWORD content deposit tool into your key systems/processes, see below.

I have checked with the SWORD project team and if they get a good proposal relating to learning & teaching systems it is definitely in scope.

Subject: SWORD v2 client funding opportunity

Hi,

Readers of this list might be interested in the following funding opportunity:

- http://swordapp.org/2011/07/sword-v2-request-for-project-proposals/

SWORD v2 in a nutshell:  SWORD is a deposit protocol that allows remote deposits to be made into SWORD compliant repositories such as DSpace, EPrints, Fedora, Microsoft Zentity, and Intralibrary.  SWORD v1 was first released in 2007 and allows one way deposits to made - coined as 'fire and forget'.  The SWORD v2 specification now enhances this by allowing deposits to be updated, replaced, or deleted, which allows for richer deposit workflows and new use cases such as collaborative authoring.

The SWORD v2 project has developed implementations for DSpace, EPrints and Fedora.  In addition it has developed client code libraries (APIs) for Java, PHP, Ruby and Python.

In order to increase the number of SWORD v2 client implementations, the JISC have donated over 5,000 to fund new SWORD v2 clients.  The majority of this money is being made available in a contested request for projects.  We are seeking developers or development teams to submit ideas for creating new SWORD v2 clients, either by upgrading existing SWORD clients, building SWORD functionality into other scholarly communications tools, or developing entirely new deposit tools.  In addition a small amount of the money will be used to provide technical support to the winning developers by the original SWORD v2 team ensuring that the projects have access to all the help and support they need.

Entrants are encouraged to make use of the existing SWORD v2 client code libraries.  Using the existing client code libraries will lower the development effort needed, enabling rapid, efficient, and cost-effective development.  Proposals to add SWORD v2 into existing well-adopted and mature systems are particularly welcome.

If you are not a developer but have some great ideas for possible new SWORD v2 clients, get in touch and we'll try and pair you up with some developers: [log in to unmask] or leave a comment at http://swordapp.org/2011/07/sword-v2-request-for-project-proposals/

Best wishes,


The SWORD v2 Team
