OpenFields

The eRepository 2.n - a space for all reasons

Position paper on the OpenFields online library

Year of Publication2010

Archives, galleries, knowledge-bases, intranets, libraries, museums, stores, repositories... What are we trying to achieve with these virtual spaces? What can we learn about the future sustainability of digital repositories from the models evolved by physical repositories? Are there some potential digital exemplars to monitor? The nature of web applications can mean that, (with suitably developed architecture) a digital repository can serve more than one master. How might digital repositories make this pragmatic step? How has OpenFields responded to the challenge?
