Summary of contents:
This document provides the policies of York Digital Library; the digital library has stated policies on:

  • Metadata
  • Code and documentation
  • Resources
  • Content [scope]
  • Submission
  • Rights
  • Preservation

York Digital Library has chosen to use Creative Commons (NC ND BY) licenses for its Metadata, documentation, and resources (where possible).

Comments:

Although the sample policies are in themselves useful – covering things like takedown policy – the explicit use of Creative Commons for the work of the digital library team is worth noting both for its use and for the instituional view it indicates.

Comments:

There’s a significant amount of overlap between the project and service websites for the Depot, and the repository itself, so I’ve just listed both websites here. The FAQ section is the main area where supporting documentation is provided on the project website along with the ‘manage deposits’ section of the repository service website.

Output – The Depot – UK Repository Junction

Title: UK Repository Junction

Date Released: June 2007

URI for Output: http://depot.edina.ac.uk/junction.html

Summary of contents:

‘UK Repository Junction’ is a re-direct service to ensure that content that comes within the remit of an existing institutional repository is correctly placed.

Additional information:

The service is essentially part of the functioning of the Depot service quality repository (separately listed as an output).

Comments:

On testing the redirection using the example of the University of Bath which has it’s own repository, the junction worked correctly.
