Saundry, A..  2017.  Institutional Repository Digital Object Metadata Enhancement and Re-Architecting. 2017 ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL). :1–3.

We present work undertaken at our institutional repository to enhance metadata and re-organize digital objects according to new information architecture, in an effort to minimize administrative object management and processing, and improve object discovery and use. This work was partly motivated by the launch of a new discovery platform at our institution, which aggregates metadata and full text from our four open access repositories into a cohesive, consistent, and enhanced searching and browsing experience. The platform provides digital object identifier (DOI) assignment, metadata access via various formats, and an open metadata and full text application program interface (API) for researchers, amongst other features. Functionality of these platform features relies heavily on accurate object representation and metadata. This work facilitates and improves the discovery and engagement of the diverse digital objects available from our institution, so they can be used and analyzed in new, flexible, and innovative ways by a myriad of communities and disciplines.
