Leveraging ERA to increase repository content
Micheal Organ, Leveraging ERA to increase repository content, Paper presented to at the CAIRSS (Council of Australian University Librarians Institutional Repository Support Service) Community Day, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University, 10 September 2010, 7p.
The legacy of Australia’s national research quality assessment process – Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) - at the University of Wollongong is improved integration between the institutional repository and research management systems, and a move towards digitisation of the Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC) process with consequent flow on of metadata and digital objects to the institutional repository. Whilst ERA was a diversion from the task of securing open access content through faculty promotion and one-on-one contact with researchers, it nevertheless gave rise to a semi-automated process which promises improved rates of content acquisition.
