Hello all,

(Caveat, I run solvonauts, which I do for free, bar winning some money 
for it once which I spent on going to a conference)

Solvonauts has 64477 resources published from a .AC.UK domain. I don't 
know how many are in jorum, but solvonauts has harvested 16600 from 
Jorum's OAI endpoint. At the end of the email are a list of resources I 
pick up from UK bodies (limited to those with over 100 results)

A quick analysis of this reveals there is more "UKOER" as a concept 
outside of jorum than there is in it - which might be stating the 
obvious, but if deposition matters to people, then the question should 
be why don't people do it? Or what is in it for people? The single 
biggest UKOER pot has been created by Nottingham Vet School and lives on 
FlickR (9691 items), the second biggest single pot is me (ha). However, 
this ignores perhaps the "second deposition problem" which is that 
institutions often have multiple pots and users who ignore or are 
oblivious to those pots. So Oxford have 9150 items over all of their 
domains, but if an institution isn't going to have one pot, then does 
that mean the national pot isn't worth it either? (this ignores two 
Oxford UKOER pots on none .ox.ac.uk domains). What would the ideal 
topology to be?

Solvonauts is built around this as a concept, in that people are going 
to put stuff into places that work for them. Solvonauts can harvest from 
RSS, OAI, Atom, Flickr, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram and as of next month 
MediaWiki and Vimeo. Oxford's 9000 resources are primarily from Drupal 
and WordPress (RSS feeds). I get more from FlickR than I do from any 
"repository". The British Library's tumblr account is bigger than all 
bar one UKOER pot, and grows every day. Edinburgh's Open Youtube Channel 
is bigger than some UKOER pots. (If you want to check a domain I just 
coded a new solvonauts function to do so. Go to 
http://solvonauts.org/?action=site_count&site=ox.ac.uk and replace the 
ox.ac.uk with part of a domain or your repository host name.)

Re domain / url permanence - as we're three years out of UKOER, a few 
UKOER funded pots have closed (Bath being one) and so all of the Bath 
URLs are now void (although all Bath resources are deposited in jorum). 
You may also note I have no Open University results in Solvonauts, which 
is partly because they change their URL structure quite often and it is 
a pain to manage it. The biggest single repo below is Leeds Met, which 
i've ignored as I know I've got to delete it and pick up their new one 
(another URL change).

So if there is a jorum deposition and url permanence problem, it is also 
reflected within institutions as well. If a national service is needed, 
then I suspect you'd need to find a way to make resource URLs permanent, 
or at least long term, and solve deposition. I'd say you can't solve 
deposition, and it's better to go look for resources instead.
