Abstract
With institutional repositories gaining more significance for research management, and with research councils starting to require Open Access publishing, these systems will gain an increasingly important role within universities and information management infrastructures. It is no longer sufficient for a repository to be a stand-alone application; integration and interoperability are the buzzwords of the next generation. Imperial College has a number of information systems already in use amongst academics, and has spent the past year integrating DSpace into its existing information architecture: creating web services, embedded user interfaces, and complex publishing workflows to manage a huge number of publications. This paper presents the development work and overall architecture of this project, what challenges were faced, and what benefits to the community it provided. It also suggests how this work may inform future development in the field, and shows how the architecture can scale to fit other repository and research needs.
