Abstract

This paper discusses the establishment of federated networks of institutional repositories and the key role that registries and registry standards are playing in this space. More specifically, we discuss the recent development of the ORCA (Online Research Collections Australia) Registry, which illustrates the practical application of registry standards in the Australian context to create a combined collections and services registry. Additionally, we discuss its use of the ISO2146 (Registry Services for Libraries and Related Organizations) standard. The ISO2146 standard provides an information model that identifies the objects and data elements needed for the collaborative construction of registries of all types. We demonstrate how this standard was implemented, particularly how it was used it as the basis for developing a registry metadata interchange format for harvesting and exchanging collection-level metadata to and from ORCA-Registry instances. Similarly, we discuss how this format incorporates the Dublin Core Collections Application Profile (DCCAP). Finally, we report on recent discussions (Dec. 2008) to establish interoperability between leading registry services to explore the possibility of establishing a global network of registries.
