Abstract

By linking Connotea to institutional repositories through the use of open standards the value of the data on the repositories can be enriched by social data from the service. Conversely, registered users from linked repositories acquire automatic membership of Connotea, boosting the quantity and quality of Connotea’s member base with quality membership, I.E. academic authors. This integration would provide the basis for a new ‘discovery and evaluation’ layer to be added to institutional repositories globally. In this scenario, repositories register with Connotea as trusted providers of Identity (Using OpenID). Aims *Encourage growth of Connotea’s data by making it easy for users of Repositories (like EPrints) to join/use Connotea through an implementation of OpenID. *Host JavaScripts on Connotea.org that can insert social data directly into record pages in repositories. Objectives *Provide for ‘discovery’ and evaluation of information on top of regular search. *Increase the amount of quality data in the Connotea database (in support of the previous objective) Success Indicators *New members of Connotea begin to join through OpenID *Web visitor statistics begin to indicate new usage patterns suggesting they are ‘discovering’ information thanks to the use of social data.
