DART-Europe

Posted by gazjjohnson on 21 December, 2010

I’m pleased to announce that the LRA’s collection of theses (close to 700 pieces of unique and valuable research produced by our PhD students) are now not only indexed and available via the British Library EThOS service but also through the DART-Europe aggregation portal.  DART-Europe is “a partnership of research libraries and library consortia who are working together to improve global access to European research theses.”

Having major aggregation services like DART-Europe index our collections help increase the discoverability, and thence the readership, of our doctoral students work further; which can only bring benefit and recognition for their scholarly endeavours.

    Hi Gaz

    Just thinking about OAI-PMH…am I right in supposing you needed to put theses into a separate set for DART?

    Nick

    • Yeah, like EThOS they can only harvest from a single set. I was talking to Martin Moyle about this a month or two back, and hence we mapped (not moved) all the LRA theses from their individual communities into a new single theses collection. Thought there might have been some issues with how our OAI-PMH functions (it returns a bit of an error), but this seems to have been over come.
