Output – SOURCE – User Case Studies of Bulk-Migration in HE

Title: User Case Studies of Bulk-Migration in HE

Date Released: 25th May 2007

URI for Output: http://www.bbk.ac.uk/lib/life/source/UserCases/player.html

Summary of contents: Slide and audio description of the SOURCE project use cases by David Flanders. Twelve bulk transfer use cases are presented in addition to architecture, object model and GUI overviews. Most use cases describe either full or partial bulk transfer of objects and/or metdata between repositories.  The scenarios are based on the transfer of learning objects but are applicable more widely.

Additonal information: Six R&D case studies and six deposit API use studies are described as part of the same presentation.

Comments: Although the slide and audio description are useful and detailed, the output in the form of a Adobe Flash movie limits it’s usefulness and re-usability. No other form of the use cases is provided via the project website. The notes section of the presentation provides textual description of the use cases but this can’t be copied.
