    AgriOcean Dspace : FAO and UNESCO-IOC/IODE combine efforts in their support of Open Access 2011
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    FAO and UNESCO-IOC/IODE provide the customization of Dspace in order to produce high quality metadata and to use thesauri. Dublin Core and AGRIS AP are the metadata used to assure that AgriOcean Dspace is OAI compliant and thus interoperable, that its data can be exchanged. High quality metadata have a beneficial influence not only on the visibility and interoperability of the records hold by a repository, but also on the accessibility. Still only through the use of controlled vocabula ries a repository can reach the highest state of accessibility which is reached when a system search results in a exhaustive search result. Authority control for AGROVOC, the multilingual agricultural thesaurus, developed by FAO and the Commission of the European Communities in the early 80s, and ASFA will be integrated. In a later stadium Kasetsart University (Thailand) will add a thesaurus plug-in using web services for both thesauri.

    Integration of language attributes in Metadata and Customization for Domain Specific Repositories 2010

    The paper presents a system for customized metadata facility adapted to expose domain specific metadata along with language attributes. Quality metadata is crucial for efficient information retrieval. Use of standard and common vocabulary leads to normalization of differences that arise due geographic, cultural, domain specific environments even amongst digital libraries with same or similar collection scopes. The present work demonstrates implementation of language attributes (which is missing in the official version of DSpace) for metadata elements. As a case study we demonstrate the AGRIS (Agricultural Information System) application profile customized for metadata in DSpace repositories. It serves as a full text content management platform for the agricultural community and especially the languagewise disparate and geographically distributed AGRIS network through enriched domain metadata in standard format for the description, management and better metadat a sharing.

    Scielo articles available to the agricultural community using OAI-PMH in AGRIS AP XML Format 2008
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This article reports a new way of getting access to SciELO full text journal articles using AGRIS AP XML format to harvest SciELO metadata and to include them into the AGRIS repository. It covers the following main steps of the work carried out: • Selecting about 43 journals with agricultural thematic from the Web site of SciELO; • Defining the methodology for harvesting; • Harvesting legacy data and then doing incremental harvesting for the new data from the selected SciELO journal articles for inclusion in the AGRIS XML repository; • Inclusion of SciELO articles and open access to them through the AGRIS search portal at http://www.fao.org/agris/search/search.do?query=%2Bcenter%3A%28XS%29 • Testing and proposals for improvement and future use of this feature. We share the methodology used, problems encountered, and the expected benefit. This work proves that semantically rich metadata for agricultural science and research publications based on the “AGRIS Applic ation Profile” from the SciELO repository can be handled by the OAI-PMH protocol. It shows how the selected subset of metadata created with an ISIS application can be harvested through OAI-PMH protocol, which in turn allows for further creation of additional services by giving greater access and visibility to SciELO data in the new AGRIS AP format compared to the used DC format. The strategy that we adopted was to adapt BIREME’s OAI-PMH plug-in for direct generating of AGRIS AP XML fro m the SciELO application. The existing BIREME OAI-PMH plug-in interface was upgraded to accept and expose metadata using AGRIS AP in addition to the existing DC schema. This approach was elegant but required more time for realization and implementation by BIREME and FAO staff.
