Following an EPrints data meeting last week, we are now sharing more of what we are doing and planning on doing, with the rest of the EPrints community.
This will hopefully lead to easier development of plugins and enhancements in the future.
With all the rapid development of data services, like the one we are testing at Glasgow, a common internal vocabulary is needed. We are now speaking with Essex and EPrint services to improve this. As I said before, this would make it much easier to roll out a generic Cerif export for Data plugin later on.
After some spreadsheet ‘tweaking’ I’ve moved our new data registry at Glasgow over to the new updated RCUK Classifications (see earlier post over on our Engage blog).
This allows us to use a up to date structured subject classification for all our datasets and potentially roll out into the full repository (Enlighten) at some stage.
