Abstract

What is the point of interoperability, what might it allow us to achieve, and why aren't we very good at it yet? Interoperability is a loosely defined concept. It can allow systems to talk to each other about the information that they hold, about the information that they can disseminate, and to interchange that information. It can allow us to tie systems together to improve ingest and dissemination of repository holdings, and allows us to distribute repository functions across multiple systems. It ought even to allow us to offer repository services to systems which don't do so natively, improving the richness of the information space; repository interoperability is not just about repository to repository, it is also about cross-system communications. The maturing set of repositories such as DSpace, Fedora and EPrints and other information systems such as publications management tools and research information systems, as well as home-spun solutions are making the task of taking on the interoperability beast both tangible and urgent.
