OSUL Knowledge Bank (KB) focus


“…a university based repository is a
set of services
that
a university offers to the members of its community for
the management and dissemination of digital materials
created by the institution and its community members. It
is most essentially an organizational commitment to the
stewardship of these digital materials, including long
-
term preservation where appropriate, as well as
organization and access or distribution. …” (2003)

Questions for Discussion:


How much of the early vision is viable today?



What is missing from our current vision?



With whom should we be collaborating on this
vision?



OCIO was early partner but less involved today. Is
there an enhanced role for the OCIO?
















The Ohio State University’s Institutional Repository:

The Knowledge Bank

More specific questions …


What role should the “Knowledge Bank” have in data
management and reuse? (e.g., federally funded data)



What is the relationship of OSUL KB services to other
knowledge services on campus for example, Media
Manager?



How do we provide a sandbox for innovation that
supports individual’s research and teaching?



The Ohio State University’s Institutional Repository:

The Knowledge Bank

Next step:

OSUL strategic plan initiative



Develop a strategic plan, for the creation, discovery,
display, and preservation of scholarly digital content,
including data
curation
, publishing, and other forms
of research support.


The Ohio State University’s Institutional Repository:

The Knowledge Bank

OSULStrategic

Plan to address:


Assessment of current needs


Identification of short and long term goals


Timeline to complete the goals


Identification of funding sources for any expanded
services


Link between OSUL KB and OCIO initiatives
