[Forwarding from NISO.  --Peter Suber.]


NISO's monthly webinar for January 2010 will discuss From ILS to Repository
and Back: Data  Interoperability. The webinar will take place on Wednesday,
January 13, 2010 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. (Eastern time). Can't make it on
January 13th? Register and you get access to the recorded archive for one
year to watch at your convenience.

About the Webinar

While institutional repository (IR) systems are meant to focus on the
storage of digital objects, most repositories contain not only objects, but
also metadata about those items. One of the main functions of library
systems is to help facilitate the discovery of items and content using
metadata. Where is the line between IR systems and the discovery and
management tools the libraries use to manage their collections? What are
some strategies that libraries can employ to integrate these systems? Is
anyone having success?

As libraries increasingly become the home to special digital collections an=
d
scanned materials,

finding simple ways to exchange information and ensure discoverability of I=
R
content will be critical to efficient management of both systems. This
webinar will provide attendees with an overview of recent research in this
topic as well as real-world examples from organizations who are working
toward interoperability.

Speakers

   - Kathleen Menzies, OCRIS: Online Catalogue and Repository
   Interoperability Study =96 Funded by the JISC Scholarly Communications G=
roup,
   OCRIS examined the interoperability of LMSs, IRs and other administrativ=
e
   systems in operation within UK universities. The project team produced
   extensive recommendations for improving the visibility and usefulness of
   intellectual assets and associated data by allowing central, and rapidly
   developing, information systems to interoperate. The findings of the OCR=
IS
   project will be presented to members of the NISO followed by a discussio=
n of
   their implications and how they relate to the wider context.
   - Sarah Shreeves, IDEALS repository at the University of Illinois at
   Urbana-Champaign =96  IDEALS is the digital repository for research and
   scholarship =96 including published and unpublished papers, datasets, vi=
deo
   and audio =96 produced at the University of Illinois.
