National Portfolio Coordinator
Australian Partnership for Sustainable Repositories (APSR)
The Australian Partnership for Sustainable Repositories (APSR) sponsors repository development projects in Australia in a range of areas, and in 2007 a priority area is “Repository Integration and Interoperability.” This session will demonstrate the work done in partnership with the National Library of Australia to define and implement a METS (Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard) profile for the automated repository-to-repository exchange of digital items/collections (e.g. digital image collections) between DSpace and Fedora. The technical details of what is required to make the two-way interoperability of DSpace and Fedora a reality will be discussed as part of the demonstration.
