Emerging Research Discovery Standards


This page started (and mostly finished) on October 6, 2008 as a survey of other universities' online repository resources. We were interested in determining whether an online digital archive/repository standard had yet emerged.


  1. citeseer
    1. Seems to be an implementation of OAI standard.
    2. UB CSE work is listed here.
  2. Computing Research Repository (CoRR)
  3. Dienst techrep NCSTRL NCSTRL-Lite
    1. Berkeley and Stanford seem to agree that Dienst is dying or dead.
    2. Existing NCSTRL search site seems to be out-of-date.
  4. Dspace
    1. If UB CSE is going to use this, why not just join SUNY's "Communities in Dspace"?
    2. FAQ
    3. Who uses it?
      1. MIT (developer)
      2. Cornell
      3. SUNY System Administration
  5. Manual Submission
    1. Who Uses It?
      1. Harvard
      2. Princeton
      3. Yale
  6. Open Archives Initiative (OAI) and the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH).
  7. Socrates
    1. New Stanford tech reports in an unsophisticated web page.
    2. Old Stanford tech reports in university-wide online library system. Only Stanford uses this technology. Proprietary?
