38. Bridging the Interoperability Divide
The Bridging the Interoperability Divide (BID) project used the principles underpinning the JISC e-framework to build interoperability between three repository systems: SRB, Fedora and SAKAI. The implementation helped join e-science, academic publishing and learning/teaching practice communities by creating a joined-up set of repository services. The project focused on demonstrating interoperability across the federation for the following services: harvesting (OAI), federated search (SRW), authentication (WebAuth), metadata management (MODS/ METS), identifiers, and discovery (OpenURL). The project created create a client for authenticated bulk upload (ingest service) into an institutional repository.
