Bridging the Interoperability Divide (BID)

Bridging the Interoperability Divide

The Bridging the Interoperability Divide (BID) project will use the principles underpinning the JISC e-framework to build interoperability between 3 repository systems: SRB, Fedora and ASK. The implementation will help join escience, academic publishing and learning/ teaching practice communities by creating a joined-up set of repository services.

The project will focus on demonstrating interoperability across the federation for the following services: harvesting (OAI), federated search (SRW), authentication (Shibboleth), metadata management (MODS/ METS), identifiers, and discovery (OpenURL). The project will also create a client for authenticated bulk upload (ingests ervice) into an institutional repository.
