Open Archives Initiative Appoints Steering Committee January 27, 2015

Posted by sandyclaus in Academic Technology.

subsequent workshop, held in conjunction with the ACM Digital Libraries meeting in San Antonio in June 2000, reviewed experiences in implementing the Santa Fe convention and mapped out issues that needed to be addressed. Out of that meeting came a consensus that the Santa Fe convention will be revised and updated with the intent of producing a new version of the document by January 2001. The newly established steering committee will oversee these efforts and will assemble technical experts as required.

In addition, there is considerable interest in extending the concepts developed at the Santa Fe convention beyond their initial context in order to support metadata harvesting for a wider range of digital resources of academic and scholarly interest. Besides e-prints and electronic texts, such resources include science and social science data sets, visual materials, archival collections, geographic information system data, sound and music, and video. This work is being pursued under the auspices of the DLF, with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Unlike the project involving the e-print archives, this effort is still highly experimental and requires validation through implementation experience. The steering committee will also help to guide the integration of this effort into the further evolution of the Santa Fe convention.

Members of the OAi steering committee include the following::
