Description

This is the final report of the JISC-funded REMAP Project, a joint project between the e-Services Integration Group (eSIG) at the University of Hull and Spoken Word Services at Glasgow Caledonian University.

The REMAP Project set out to build on a previous JISC-funded project, RepoMMan. The RepoMMan Project had developed a tool which would allow a user to interact with a private ‘My Repository’ space in a Fedora repository to develop materials of whatever kind: text, images, databases etc. In addition, the RepoMMan tool investigated ways in which metadata could be automatically generated for the materials if and when the author decided that they should be ‘published’ to an institutional repository where others might benefit from them. RepoMMan stopped short of developing the ‘publish’ process itself.

The main aims of this REMAP Project were to develop the publishing process that would allow an author to make materials available through an institutional repository using an extended RepoMMan tool. In addition it was planned that REMAP would investigate embedding into the digital objects thus produced ‘triggers’ that would help with the ongoing management and possible preservation of the materials over time, a process that we called ‘records management and digital preservation’ (RMDP).
