DuraSpace Technologies The DuraSpace technology portfolio crosses the boundaries of institutional systems, the Web, and cloud infrastructure and inherently addresses representation and preservation of digital content. Our open source software and services help to ensure that current and future generations have access to our collective digital heritage and currently power more than 2,000 sites in 90 countries. DSpace ( is a turnkey institutional repository application, Fedora ( is a framework for building digital repositories, VIVO ( is a locally hosted system for showcasing the scholarship of an institution, and DuraCloud ( an open source platform and managed service that provides on-demand storage and services for digital content in the cloud.
Overview of Open Access in the EU member states 16 de Marzo de 2010 Europe, and the EU member states, already have a strong tradition in Open Access, both in building infrastructures for Open Access repositories and stimulating the establishment Open Access journals and transition of traditional publishing to Open Access. Open Access Repositories in Europe The DRIVER project helped to establish and develop repositories in each of the European countries, and stimulated Open Access archiving by promoting policy development at the national level. Institutions wishing to set up a repository can find extensive directions and recommendations on the DRIVER support site.
Web of Knowledge WEB OF Science Your ideal single research destination to explore the citation universe across subjects and around the world. Web of Science provides you access to the most reliable, integrated, multidisciplinary research connected through linked content citation metrics from multiple sources within a single interface. eSciDoc.PubMan, a publication repository software MPG.PuRe This is the publication repository of the Max Planck Society. It contains bibliographic data and numerous fulltexts of the publications of its researchers. The repository is based on eSciDoc.PubMan, a publication repository software developed by the Max Planck Digital Library. Currently we are working on the migration of the data base of the predecessor system eDoc into this repository.

A PURL is a persistent URL, it provides a permanent address to access a resource on the web. When a user retrieves a PURL they will be redirected to the current location of the resource. When an author needs to move a page they can update the PURL to point to the new location.
Persistent uniform resource locator - Wikipedia A persistent uniform resource locator (PURL) is a uniform resource locator (URL) (i.e., location-based uniform resource identifier or URI) that is used to redirect to the location of the requested web resource. PURLs redirect HTTP clients using HTTP status codes. PURLs are used to curate the URL resolution process, thus solving the problem of transitory URIs in location-based URI schemes like HTTP. Technically the string resolution on PURL is like SEF URL resolution. History The PURL concept was developed at OCLC (the Online Computer Library Center) in 1995 and implemented using a forked pre-1.0 release of Apache HTTP Server. The software was modernized and extended in 2007 by Zepheira under contract to OCLC and the official website moved to (the 'Z' came from the Zepheira name and was used to differentiate the PURL open-source software site from the PURL resolver operated by OCLC).
Handle System - Wikipedia As with handles used elsewhere in computing, Handle System handles are opaque, and encode no information about the underlying resource, being bound only to metadata regarding the resource. Consequently, the handles are not rendered invalid by changes to the metadata. The system was developed by Bob Kahn at the Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI). The original work was funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) between 1992 and 1996, as part a wider framework for distributed digital object services, and was thus contemporaneous with the early deployment of the World Wide Web, with similar goals. The Handle System was first implemented in autumn 1994, and was administered and operated by CNRI until December 2015, when a new "multi-primary administrator" (MPA) mode of operation was introduced. Thousands of handle services are currently running.
Institutional repository software comparison The Guidelines to compare Institutional Repository Software have been published as part of UNESCO’s Open Access Strategy. The publication compares the features of the major platforms and is intended to help libraries focus on which features will help facilitate the success of their repository. Institutional Repositories (IRs) were first developed as an online solution for collecting, preserving, and disseminating the scholarship of universities, colleges, and other research institutions. Institutional Repositories Institutional Repositories (IRs) can be directly loaded into EBSCO Discovery Serviceso that they can be fully searched alongside all other EDS resources/content. Loading Institutional Repositories EBSCO supports harvesting institutional repositories via Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) or via File Transfer Protocol (FTP). EBSCO has developed a flexible framework for mapping your data to EDS.
