Going Dutch - Introducing Artudis - A New Repository Platform

The repository services space has had mixed success, and the experience at Carleton University has been no different. While theses and dissertations are well covered, our faculty publications content remained limited both in scope and growth. We needed a new platform and a new approach, and the MacOdrum Library found an exciting solution by going Dutch.

The Artudis repository platform is being actively developed at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, and in early 2016 we embarked on a beta program partnership to be the first North American implementation of this new open source platform. This presentation will focus on the rapid deployment model supported by Artudis, the standard as well as new exciting content types we can now manage, reporting and visualizations using Google’s BigQuery, plus a tour of key user and system administration features.

Discussion will also include the key underpinnings to our decision, with a focus on metadata, identifiers, linked data, and the central role that publisher APIs can play, permitting us to grow our faculty publications 30 fold in less than six months.

 Finally, we’ll demonstrate how we can improve the value and interest in our open access repository by making a major shift to integrate selected non-open access content.
