  • The general conference program will be organized around the following themes:
    • Strategic context (social and technical) for repositories
    • Value-added services to enhance particular repositories
    • Achieving interoperability for repositories
    • Repositories and IT infrastructure
    • Open source software
    • Digital preservation
    • Use cases for repositories
    • Modeling for digital objects and repositories

    • DRIADE's Title: Classifying Scientific Data Objects with Bibliographic Relationship Taxonomies
    • Abstract: Frameworks representing instantiations of bibliographic entities can aid the development of digital resource repositories that promote data sharing, integration, and synthesis. DRIADE (Digital Repository of Information and Data for Evolution), a collaboration between the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center and the Metadata Research Center, is a repository for scientific data objects supporting published research in the field of evolutionary biology. DRIADE ensures long-term preservation and promotes resource discovery and reuse for a wide-variety of heterogeneous digital datasets supporting published data. A metadata application profile, drawing from the Dublin Core, DDI (Data Document Initiative), EML (Ecology Metadata Language), and the PREMIS (PREservation Metadata: Implementation Strategies) data dictionary, support the repository’s first phase. A functional requirement for repository’s system is to record data object augmentation, integration, synthesis, or manipulation that effectively leads to new objects. We are exploring the applicability of the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Relationships (FRBR) and selected bibliographic relationship taxonomies for tracking the life cycle and familial growth of DRIADE data objects. This presentation will report on our analyses to date, including results of a study that examined biologists’ comprehension of bibliographic relationships and their view on the applicability and usefulness of tracking the life cycle of data objects.
