Collaboration between repositories

  •  Strong need for interoperability between different repository initiatives and software development projects.
  • ARROW is working with the Fedora Development Consortium, the National Science Digital Library and the Australian Partnerships for Sustainable Repositories (APSR) projects on these issues
  • Cross-sector Opportunities:
    • registry of standard content models (definitions of types of content and associated object structures and metadata)
    • influence the emergence of de facto standards in the absence of existing practice
    • achieve agreement on a standard framework for re-usable web services
