RECOLECTA provides specific services to national repository managers:

  • Support for managers on the inclusion of repositories in RECOLECTA. For this, the managers must be using OAI-PMH (Open Archives Initiative-Protocol Metadata Harvesting) protocols and DRIVER (Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research) Directives.
  • Support for complying with international interoperability and long-term sustainability standards and protocols. FECYT translate and disseminate the international guidelines that must be implemented by the repositories.
  • Provision of repository quality measurement tools based on actions such as the development of guidelines for evaluation or the analysis of the degree of achievement with international guidelines such as DRIVER, among others.
  • Provision of tools to measure repository use and use of the material they contain (implementation and support for the statistics module).

If you are a repository manager, please consult the documents included on the left side (DRIVER certification service, guidelines, translations and directives) we can provide for adapting your repository to European and national directives.
