1 - Introduction to Institutional Repositories and DSpace
1. What is an institutional repository?
A university-based institutional repository offers a set of services to the researchers of that
specific research community, for the management and dissemination of digital
academic/research materials (excluding work of administrative or commercial nature) donated
to or created by the institution and its community members.
The set of services includes the collection, storage and preservation in digital format, and
retrieval of items submitted to the institutional repository.
“It is most essentially an organisational commitment to the stewardship of these digital
research materials, including long-term preservation where appropriate, as well as
organisation and access or distribution” (Lynch 2003).
2. Open access and institutional repositories
Open access (OA) is free, immediate, permanent, full-text, online access, for any user, webwide, to digital scientific and scholarly material, primarily research articles published in peerreviewed journals. An open-access article has limited copyright and licensing restrictions
which means anyone, anywhere, with access to the Internet may read, download, copy, and
distribute that article.
The first major international statement on open access was the Budapest Open Access
Initiative in February 2002. This provided a definition of open access, and has a growing list of
signatories. Two further statements followed: the Bethesda Statement on Open Access
Publishing in June 2003 and the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the
Sciences and Humanities in October 2003.
OA has since become the subject of much discussion amongst researchers, academics,
librarians, university administrators, funding agencies, government officials, commercial
publishers, and society publishers. Although there is substantial (though not universal)
agreement on the concept of OA itself, there is considerable debate and discussion about the
economics of funding peer review in open access publishing, and the reliability and economic
effects of self-archiving.
There are two main currents in the open access movement
1. In OA self-archiving (also known as the "green" road to OA), authors publish in a
subscription journal, but in addition make their articles freely accessible online,
usually by depositing them in either an institutional repository (such as UPSpace) or
in a central repository (such as PubMed Central). The deposit can be in the form of a
peer-reviewed postprint or a non-peer-reviewed preprint. OA self-archiving was first
formally proposed in 1994 by Stevan Harnad. However, self-archiving was already
being done by computer scientists in their local FTP archives in the '80s, later
harvested into Citeseer. High-energy physicists have been self-archiving centrally in
arXiv since 1991.
View Publisher’s policies on self-archiving within institutional repositories. Visit
Sherpa/RoMEO at http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo.php . If the publisher you are
looking for is not listed, contact the publisher directly or visit the web site for that
publisher. Also encourage publishers to make their policies on self-archiving available
on Sherpa/RoMEO by completing the online form at
http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo.php
2. In OA publishing (also known as the "gold" road to OA) authors publish in open
access journals that make their articles freely accessible online immediately upon
publication. Examples of OA publishers are BioMed Central and the Public Library of
Science.

3. About DSpace
DSpace captures data in any format – in text, video, audio, and data. It distributes it over
the web. It indexes work, so users can search and retrieve these items. It preserves digital
work over the long term.
DSpace provides a way to manage your research materials and publications in a
professionally maintained repository to give them greater visibility and accessibility over time.
DSpace is freely available as open source software, and can be downloaded from
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dspace/
What is “Open source”?
Open source is a set of principles and practices on how to write software, the most important
of which is that the source code is openly available. The Open Source Definition, which was
created by Bruce Perens and Eric Raymond and is currently maintained by the Open Source
Initiative, adds additional meaning to the term: one should not only get the source code but
also have the right to use it. If the latter is denied the license is categorized as a shared
source license.


Getting research results out quickly, to a worldwide audience
Reaching a worldwide audience through exposure to search engines such as
Google and Google Scholar
Storing reusable research materials that can be used with course management
systems
Archiving and distributing material, linking from a personal website
Storing examples of students’ projects (with the students’ permission)
Showcasing students’ theses (again with permission)
Keeping track of researcher’s own publications/bibliography
Having a persistent network identifier for research work, that never changes or
breaks
No more page charges for images. Researchers can point to the images’ persistent
identifiers in their published articles.

2 – Prepare an item for submission to DSpace
1. Obtain permission to archive items on institutional repository (Licensing &
Copyright Issues)
To add content to DSpace, you must have the copyright to the material, or have permission
to submit work for which you do not have copyright. You should be willing and able to grant
the university library the right to preserve and distribute the work in DSpace.
Many publishers offer a “self-archiving” clause in publication contracts, which allows the
author/researcher to archive a copy of a work. If the publisher doesn’t offer such a clause,
the author/researcher can negotiate to include one.
To protect submitters, other role players as well as the institution, it is important to also
archive letters of consent on the repository. This way, links can be created between items
submitted and the letter of consent, or between the collection home page for a specific
collection and the letter of consent for that collection.




Items donated to institution: Archive letter of consent by original owner or donor.
Scholarly material/ published articles (publisher holds copyright): View publisher
policy on http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo.php or contact publisher directly if policy is
not available on Sherpa/RoMEO. Archive letter of consent by publisher.
Material created by members of the institution, for which the institution holds
copyright (e.g. theses & dissertations): No consent needed.
Other
Example of a collection which contains letters of consent:
https://www.up.ac.za/dspace/handle/2263/1149
2. Scanning/ Digitization
Prior to submitting an item to DSpace, it needs to adhere to certain standards according to
the Digitization Policy for your institution. Digitally born as well as non-digitally born items
can be submitted to the institutional repository after being digitized. A wide variety of
scanners are available on the market.
For general scanning: EPSON or Hewlett Packard e.g. A3 EPSON 1540 XL
For highly specialized scanning: BookEye Scanner
Ordinary material is digitised at maximum 600 dpi and slides are digitised at 2400 dpi
(depending on the quality etc.). For archival/ special material: Scan the archival version in tiff
format, and archive on the archival server. Deriveted version is then submitted to the IR, in
pdf format, as well as any additional formats e.g. jpeg in order to generate thumbnails.
Why pdf format?
The Portable Document Format (PDF) is the file format created by Adobe Systems in 1993
for document exchange. PDF is a fixed-layout format used for representing two-dimensional
documents in a manner independent of the application software, hardware, and operating
system. Each PDF file encapsulates a complete description of a 2-D document (and, with
Acrobat 3-D, embedded 3-D documents) that includes the text, fonts, images, and 2-D vector
graphics that compose the document PDF is an open standard, and recently took a major
step towards becoming ISO 32000.

3. File formats
UPSpace accepts all manner of digital formats. Some examples of items that UPSpace can
accommodate are: documents, such as; articles, preprints, working papers, technical
reports, conference papers, books, theses and dissertations, data sets, computer programs:
visualizations, simulations, and other models, multimedia publications, administrative
records, published books, overlay journals, bibliographic datasets, images, audio files, video
files, reformatted digital library collections, learning objects, web pages. As for specific file
formats, obsolescence and proprietary formats make it impossible to guarantee the exact
same level of preservation support services for every file. DSpace follows the following policy
re file formats:



Everything put into DSpace will be retrievable
DSpace will recognize as many file formats as possible
DSpace supports as many known file formats as possible
Visit http://www.dspace.org// for more info on various file formats accepted by Dspace.
Visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alphabetical_list_of_file_extensions for an alphabetical list of
file naming extensions.
4. File naming conventions – best practices
When working with a wide variety of file names, it is quite difficult to apply certain
conventions throughout the IR. Needs differ from collection to collection, and also from one
file format to another. E.g. data sets for specific research areas have very specific guidelines
when file names are assigned.
Access the following links from http://www.dspace.up.ac.za/digitisation.htm:
DISA Guidelines for best practise
Library of Congress naming conventions for digital resources
Some general guidelines when assigning file names:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Keep file names as short and descriptive possible.
Avoid capital letters.
Avoid special characters e.g. “, ~.
Use _ (underscore) to create spaces between characters – do not use your
spacebar.
Use logical file names.
Apply file name structure consistently throughout the collection if possible.
Only use alphabetical letters or numbers.
Where numerical sequence is important, use numbers, e.g. 01title_page.pdf;
02contents.pdf etc.

3 – Roles & Workflow
1. Roles & responsibilities
An institution should recognize that Communities (schools/faculties) have very different ideas
as to how material should be submitted to DSpace, by whom, and with what restrictions.
The system has the notion of e-people who have roles in the workflow of a particular
Community in the context of a given collection.
There are three possible roles in DSpace as part of the workflow process: submitter, reviewer,
and metadata editor. An e-mail message is sent to each person at the appropriate step in the
workflow, with authorizations set up in advance for each role.

7 – Managing a collection within the IR
What are my responsibilities as Collection Administrator within the IR?
1. Promoting & marketing the IR
You can promote/market the IR amongst your clients in any of the following ways:
-
Make an appointment with your departments/individual researchers. Show and tell them how
they can benefit from the IR.
Mention the IR during departmental meetings.
Communicate info about the IR via e-mail, e.g. new items added to departmental collections,
usage statistics for items, etc.
Participate in departmental exhibits.
Keep clients updated by frequently communicating to them about the IR.
Etc.
According to the DSpace web – marketing lessons learned:

Ongoing communication on campus is vital
Timing is critical
Keep in close contact with existing communities
Use success stories, quotations from faculty etc.
Work with your university’s Grants Office
Invest your time and money in getting a community going
Different disciplines think differently, and have different needs. Address them specifically.
Educate faculty about issues of digital scholarship, preservation, open access etc.
Easy sells – show faculty how easy it is to submit and find content
The persistent identifier for content is the single best selling point for the IR when talking with
faculty
Word-of-mouth among faculty and end-users is invaluable
Success doesn’t always follow immediately after a researcher publishes an article etc.
Marketing efforts pay off eventually
Create some buzz! Make a lot of presentations, write articles for campus publications, build
interest in long-term preservation on campus
Read campus newsletters and spot opportunities for material that can be submitted. Make
contact with the responsible persons.
2. Identify possible collections
Identify possible collections to be created within the IR by staying current on research and other
activities within your department/faculty, e.g. conferences, visiting lecturers. Encourage researchers
to submit all research material to the IR.
For inquiries re collections that need to be digitised, please contact [email protected]
3. Gain support from the department
Negotiate with the department/researcher for support, in the form of research assistants or
part-time staff who can maybe assist with the submission process. Students can submit theses/
dissertations themselves.
Departments are also encouraged to purchase their own scanners and pdf conversion software.
cc 2008 University of Pretoria
Compiled by the UP IR Team
Inquiries: [email protected] 3/8/2016
4. Register new collections
Once a new IR collection has been identified, apply for a new collection with the IR Manager at your
institution.
Please clarify in advance who the submitters & reviewers will be. The Metadata Editor will probably
be the person responsible for cataloguing library material for that department. Leave blank if
unknown.
You will be notified by the IR Manager once the collection has been created.
5. Compile a collection policy
To ensure consistency throughout the collection, it is important to make certain decisions in advance
before starting to submit items. Each collection will have unique needs. Policy template available at
http://www.dspace.up.ac.za/collectionpolicy.doc , and e-mail as an attachment to the IR Manager.
This policy can be linked to the collection, and must also be updated frequently.
6. Keep collection home page updated
Although the initial home page will be created for you by the IR Manager, it will be necessary to
update certain information from time to time, e.g. contact details or other info. As collection
administrator you will have certain rights, e.g. to change the logo, to change the introductory
paragraph, etc. Most of the fields accept html. If you are not familiar with html, use an html editor e.g.
Dreamweaver or MSFrontPage, and copy the code to your IR Collection Home Page.
1. Once you have logged in to the IR, you can simply click on the name of your collection.
2. Click on the Edit button to edit your collection home page.
3. Remember to Update all changes made to the collection home page.

7. Register/remove submitters
Clients will contact you if they want to become a submitter for a certain collection. View the procedure
for registering submitters at http://www.dspace.up.ac.za/submitguide.pdf For you to be able to see
that e-person and assign the necessary rights, that person need to login to the IR at least once.

Click on Edit Submitters.
Select E-People, and click on Add next to the name of each new submitter.
Close the window, and Update Group.
To remove unwanted submitters, instead of clicking on “Select E-People”, click on “Remove Selected”
once you have selected the name of the person in the list.
Click on Update Group when finished.
8. Subscribe to a collection
Stay updated and monitor the activity within a collection by subscribing to a collection. This is also
important if you want to map between collections. By subscribing you will receive e-mail notifications
every time a new item has been submitted to the collection you subscribed to.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Login to UPSpace.
Go to the collection to which you want to subscribe.
Click on Subscribe.
Click on Unsubscribe to unsubscribe.
9. Map between collections
You can map or create links to an item from one collection to another. The item only needs to be
submitted once, but it will be accessible from more than one collection. This is especially useful in
case of interdisciplinary items, or in the case of personal researcher collections. You can then map
cc 2008 University of Pretoria
Compiled by the UP IR Team
Inquiries: [email protected] 3/8/2016
from the secondary researchers’ “Research Articles” collection to the primary “Research Articles”
collection for the department.
Guidelines for mapping are available at http://www.dspace.up.ac.za/itemmapper.pdf
1. The Collection Administrator needs to login under My UPSpace first.
2. Go to the Collection to which you would like to “map” items. E.g. to map items from the
“Jonathan Jansen Research Papers Collection”, open the “Jonathan Jansen Research
Papers Collection”.
3. Click on “Item Mapper”.
4. Type the name of the author for items to which you would like to map, and click on “Search
Authors”.

SHERPA/RoMEO: http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo.php
Acknowledge sources and donations properly.
For referencing techniques, visit http://www.ais.up.ac.za/referencing/
11. Create an Item Template in collaboration with the Metadata Editor
By applying a template to the submission form for a specific Collection within the IR, you can make
the submission and metadata editing processes much easier for your Submitters and Metadata
Editors.
Use the Item template to guide your submitters, or to fill out certain fields in advance. This way
Submitters/ Metadata Editors won’t need to manually type in the same thing over and over for each
individual item.
Example of Item Template that was compiled for the Phronimon Collection
(https://www.up.ac.za/dspace/handle/2263/4137) (This is the responsibility of the Collection
Administrator, and should be done in collaboration with the Metadata Editor (Cataloguer) for that
specific Collection, and other role players if applicable).

search box in the middle of the home page). You don’t need to be logged in to search.
To limit your search to a specific community, navigate to Advanced Search, and select the
community from the drop-down list:
cc 2008 University of Pretoria
Compiled by the UP IR Team
Inquiries: [email protected] 3/8/2016
Some search hints:
What is searched in the general keyword search (yellow box)
The word(s) you enter in the search box will be searched against the title,
author, subject abstract, series, sponsor and identifier fields of each item's
record.
If your site is enabled for full-text searching, the text you entered will also be
searched against the full text of all archived documents.
What is not searched - Stop Words
The search engine ignores certain words that occur frequently in English, but do
not add value to the search. These are:
"a", "and" , "are" , "as" , "at" , "be" , "but" , "by" , "for" , "if" , "in" , "into",
"is" ,"it" ,"no" , "not" , "of" , "on" , "or" , "such", "the" , "to" , "was"
Truncation
Use an asterisk (*) after a word stem to get all hits having words starting with
that root, for example:
will retrieve selects, selector, selectman,
selecting.
Stemming
The search engine automatically expands words with common endings to
include plurals, past tenses ...etc.
Phrase Searching
To search using multiple words as a phrase, put quotation marks (") around the
phrase.
Exact word match
Put a plus (+) sign before a word if it MUST appear in the search result. For
instance, in the following search the word "training" is optional, but the word
"dog" must be in the result.
Eliminate items with unwanted words
Put a minus (-) sign before a word if it should not appear in the search results.
Alternatively, you can use NOT. This can limit your search to eliminate
unwanted hits. For instance, in the search
cc 2008 University of Pretoria
Compiled by the UP IR Team
Inquiries: [email protected] 3/8/2016
or
you will get items containing the word "training", except those that also contain
the word "cat".
Boolean searching
The following Boolean operators can be used to combine terms. Note that they
must be CAPITALIZED !
AND - to limit searches to find items containing all words or phrases combined
with this operator, e.g.
will retrieve all items that contain BOTH
the words "cats" and "dogs".
OR - to enlarge searches to find items containing any of the words or phrases
surrounding this operator
will retrieve all items that contain EITHER
the words "cats" or "dogs".
NOT - to exclude items containing the word following this operator, e.g.
will retrieve all items that contain the
word "training" EXCEPT those also containing the word "cat".
Parentheses can be used in the search query to group search terms into sets,
and operators can then be applied to the whole set, e.g.
3.2
Advanced Search
The advanced search page allows you to specify the fields you wish to search, and to combine
these searches with the Boolean "and", "or" or "not".
You can restrict your search to a community by clicking on the arrow to the right of the top box. If
you want your search to encompass all of the IR, leave that box in the default position.
Then select the field to search in the left hand column and enter the word or phrase you are
searching in the right hand column. You can select the Boolean operator to combine searches
by clicking on the arrow to the right of the "AND" box.
Note: You must use the input boxes in order. If you leave the first one blank your search
will not work.

About UPSpace
UPSpace is a university-based institutional repository which offers a set of services to the members
of the UP Community*, for the management and dissemination of digital academic/research materials
(excluding work of administrative or commercial nature) donated to or created by the institution and
its community members. The set of services includes the collection, storage and preservation in
digital format, and retrieval of items submitted to UPSpace. “It is most essentially an organisational
commitment to the stewardship of these digital research materials, including long-term preservation
where appropriate, as well as organisation and access or distribution” (Lynch 2003).
The UPSpace interface provides for easy decentralised self-archiving by faculty, and organizes the
documents in logical, easily retrievable fashion.
The repository uses DSpaceTM software, developed at MIT with support from Hewlett Packard, which
complies with the Open Archives Initiative (OAI); thus allowing articles to be easily discovered by web
search engines, services and indexing tools.
Each item in the repository is assigned a unique persistent identifier, using the CNRI Handle System.
The identifiers are resolvable in perpetuity, and will remain valid even if content migrates to a new
system. This allows documents in the repository to be properly and effectively cited in other research.
* The UP Community refers to:



Present and future staff members of the Department of Library Services, University of
Pretoria;
Past, present and future academic staff at the University of Pretoria;
Focus areas, faculties, centers, institutes and research divisions at UP.

UPSpace Policy Advisory Group (incl. IR Steering Committee)
2.1
Focus of the UPSpace Policy Advisory Group
It will be the responsibility of the UPSpace Policy Advisory Group to determine the service’s policies
on content submission and distribution, privacy and licensing issues, and other service guidelines.
The Policy Advisory Group’s role will be ongoing; issues will be revisited on a regular basis and as
new issues arise. The Policy Advisory Group’s decisions will have important implications for how the
UPSpace service fits into the Department of Library Service’s overall mission and the University of
Pretoria’s mission and goals.
2.2
Role of the UPSpace Policy Advisory Group
The UPSpace Policy Advisory Group will make decisions related to UPSpace services, standards,
and functionality. When the group’s decisions have significant financial, service, or public relations
impact, the issues will be referred to the Department of Library Services Management Team, made
up of senior library administrators, for endorsement.
2.3

Open Access Approach at UP Libraries
Research is not always accessible to all, and often only to the benefit of those who can afford to
subscribe to very expensive databases. The Department of Library Services supports open access to
cc 2008 University of Pretoria
Compiled by the UP IR Team
Inquiries: [email protected] 3/8/2016
all research conducted by members of the UP community, provided that patents, copyright and
intellectual property rights issues are taken into account, and the laws that govern these issues are
adhered to. Through making UP research output freely available for all to access and use, we would
like to help increase the usage, impact and citation rate of research conducted by our members, as
well as the visibility of the University of Pretoria on international level. This can in turn impact on the
NRF-rating and H-index of individual researchers, and the listing of the University of Pretoria on the
Shanghai University List.
Currently there are two currents in the Open Access movement:
•
•
OA self-archiving in institutional repositories (“green” road to OA)
OA publishing (“gold” road to OA – see e.g. DOAJ)
In addition to archive their research output within the institutional repository, researchers are
encouraged to publish in journals supporting the gold road.
5.
Submission Policy
5.1
Persons allowed to submit content to UPSpace
Any UP staff member or research member of the UP Community may submit items to the repository
once the necessary rights have been assigned to that individual by the Collection Administrator of a
specific Collection. Permission to submit items to a specific Collection will have to be granted to that
member by the administrator of a Collection, in order for him/her to be able to upload items.
Applications must be send directly to the e-mail address of the Collection Administrator, provided on
the Collection Homepage.

Policy on Collections within UPSpace
6.1 Defining a Collection in UPSpace
cc 2008 University of Pretoria
Compiled by the UP IR Team
Inquiries: [email protected] 3/8/2016
Items in the repository are organized according to Collections. A UPSpace "Collection" can be
described as an academic unit that produces research, has a defined leader, has long-term
stability, and can assume responsibility for setting Collection policies. Each Collection must be
able to assign a coordinator (administrator) who can work with the UPSpace Platform Manager.
Groups wishing to establish a UPSpace Collection that do not fall into this definition will be
considered on a case-by-case basis. Individuals may not submit items without belonging to an
established Collection in UPSpace because they do not constitute a unit.
A Top-level Community will only be created once the need therefore is expressed, and once
items become available for submission to Collection/s within that Top-level Community.
Communities which contain Collections without any content will be removed from the system by
the UPSpace Platform Manager. To register a Community or Collection, the Collection
Administrator must complete the necessary online form available at
https://www.up.ac.za/dspace/application .The Collection Administrator will then be contacted by
the UPSpace Platform Manager.

Licensing, Copyright, Privacy and Intellectual Property Issues
11.1
UPSpace Distribution License
When submitting an item to UPSpace, the submitter, author/s or copyright owner/s grants nonexclusive distribution rights to the University of Pretoria. This non-exclusive distribution rights in no
way prevents an author/s or copyright owner/s from publishing the work in a research journal or
distributing it in any other fashion. The author/s or copyright owner/s retains full copyright of the work.
It is the responsibility of the submitters to gain copyright clearance where necessary, and to
familiarize themselves with the self-archiving policies of the various publishers, nationally and
internationally.
When submitting items to UPSpace, please make sure that you adhere to copyright requirements.
Ask permission before you archive material on UPSpace, and submit the letter of consent to the
UPSpace Letters of Consent Collection (https://www.up.ac.za/dspace/handle/2263/1149) on
UPSpace. Use the "Rights" field to refer to the permission that was obtained.
Copyright of Research articles: Policies of many publishers of research articles can be found in the
Romeo Project available at http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo.php. If the publisher’s policy is not
available on this database, publishers are contacted directly to obtain permission. The letter of
consent/ no consent is then archived within the UPSpace Letters of Consent Collection. Publishers
are also encouraged to make their policies on self-archiving within institutional repositories available
on SHERPA RoMEO. See http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeoupdate.php
Where embargoes apply to articles, these articles are submitted and access to the full text is
restricted on bitstream level for the duration of the embargo. A note is added to the <rights> field. This
is done via communication between the Collection Administrator and the IR Manager. Once the
embargo expires, the Collection Administrator notifies the IR Manager, who will in turn remove any
restrictions to the bitstream.

Services offered through UPSpace
The UPSpace Service will offer a set of core services, available at no charge to Community members
and consumers of UPSpace content. Services will be reviewed over time.
UP Space Core Services are comprised of two distinct but interconnected service elements,
Interactive Services and Operations Services. UPSpace Interactive Services offer a fully functional
system that allows UPSpace Community members and consumers of UPSpace content to
accomplish all tasks necessary to submit and access items in UPSpace, as applicable. Additionally,
the Dept. of Library Services in collaboration with the Dept. of IT, University of Pretoria provides
Operations Services to host and preserve faculty materials, establish and deliver ongoing support for
UPSpace Communities, respond to customer inquiries, and supply system monitoring, back up, and
recovery.
13.
Preservation Policy & Support
13.1
File formats
The University of Pretoria implementation of DSpace/UPSpace attempts to support as many file
formats as possible.
UPSpace identifies two levels of digital preservation: bit preservation, and functional preservation.
Bit preservation ensures that a file remains exactly the same over time and not a single bit is
changed while the physical media evolve around it.
Functional preservation: the file does change over time so that the material continues to be
immediately usable in the same way it was originally while the digital formats (and the physical
media) evolve over time. Some file formats can be functionally preserved using straightforward format
migration (e.g. TIFF images or XML documents). Other formats are proprietary, or for other reasons
are much harder to preserve functionally.
At the University of Pretoria, for the time being, we acknowledge the fact that the formats in which
faculty create their research material are not something we can predict or control. Faculties use the
tools that are best for their purposes, and we will get whatever formats those tools produce. Because
of this UPSpace defines three levels of preservation for a given format: supported, known, or
unsupported.



Supported: The format will be fully supported and preserved using either format migration or
emulation techniques.
Known: The format can be recognised by UPSpace, but full support cannot be guaranteed.
Unsupported: The format cannot be recognised by UPSpace; these will be listed as
"application/octet-stream", aka Unknown.
cc 2008 University of Pretoria
Compiled by the UP IR Team
Inquiries: [email protected] 3/8/2016
When a file is uploaded to UPSpace, it will be assigned to one of those three categories. For all three
levels bit-level preservation will be done so that digital archaeologists of the future will have the raw
material to work with if the material proves to be worth that effort.
For the full text of text items to be fully searchable in UPSpace, these items must be made available
on UPSpace in any of the following formats:
Adobe PDF (only if text-based or OCRed) - without any securities added
Microsoft Word
Plain Text
HTML
13.2
Description Metadata (Administrative, Technical, Preservation)
For preservation purposes - in other words, so that we will still be able to access files submitted to
UPSpace in a 100 years time - it is very important to give a description of how the file was created in
the "Description" field of the submission form, the origin of the file etc. Also use this field to describe
the dimensions of the object, how it was digitized, etc. This kind of information will help information
architects of the future to migrate obsolete files to updated versions, so that it will still be accessible
long after our time. Any info the submitter can offer, will be of value in such a case. Also see the
guidelines in the UPSpace Quick Guide: http://www.dspace.up.ac.za/quickguide.pdf (Updated on 17
March 2008)

13.3
Checksums
For each item submitted to UPSpace a checksum is generated. This checksum is used to verify the
integrity of a full text file over time. Therefore replacement of bitstreams will be restricted as far as
possible.
To summarise - UP's policy for file formats is:





Everything put in UPSpace will be retrievable.
As many files formats as possible will be recognised.
As many known file formats as possible will be supported through UPSpace.
Formats and techniques will be continuously monitored to ensure needs can be
accommodated as they arise.
The size of a bitstream allowed for submission is currently unlimited, but this will be revised
over time.

Withdrawal Policy
It is foreseen that sometimes it may be necessary to remove items from the repository. Under some
circumstances items will be removed from view (withdrawn), but to avoid loss of the historical record,
all such transactions will be traced in the form of a note in the <description.provenance> field of the
Dublin Core record. The content of the note should be one of the following:
" removed from view at request of the author"
" removed from view at the library's discretion"
" removed from view at UP's discretion"
" removed from view by legal order"
Since any repository item that has existed at some time may have been cited, we will always supply a
“tombstone” when the item is requested, which will provide a withdrawal statement in place of the link
to the object. The metadata should be visible, but not searchable. These items will be made
unavailable for metadata harvesting.
Items to be finally deleted (expunged) from the system will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
15.
Workflow Policy
The University of Pretoria recognizes that Communities (schools/faculties) have very different ideas
as to how material should be submitted to UPSpace, by whom, and with what restrictions. The
following are issues that should be addressed by the Community representatives (administrators),
working together with the UPSpace Platform Manager, and are then modeled in a workflow for each
collection to enforce their decisions.






15.1
Who can deposit items?
What type of items will they deposit?
Who else needs to review, enhance, or approve the submission?
To what collections can they deposit material?
Who can see the items once deposited?
What metadata fields should be included on the Submission User Interface for specific
Collections? Will it be the default DSpace Submission user interface, or a customised
interface for that specific Collection?
UPSpace Roles
The system has the notion of e-people who have roles in the workflow of a particular Community in
the context of a given collection. Individuals from the Community are automatically registered with
cc 2008 University of Pretoria
Compiled by the UP IR Team
Inquiries: [email protected] 3/8/2016
UPSpace via the UP Portal (after authentication against the LDAP Server), then manually assigned to
appropriate roles.
There are three possible roles in UPSpace as part of the workflow process: submitter, reviewer, and
metadata editor. An e-mail message is sent to each person at the appropriate step in the workflow,
with authorizations set up in advance for each role. We are committed towards processing items
within a period of six working days. UPSpace responsibilities are formally part of the
role descriptions of all Cataloguers (Metadata Editors) and Information Specialists (Collection
Administrators) at UP libraries.
Submitter permissions - Can edit metadata for own submission
- Can upload files for own submission
- Cannot do anything once item is submitted
Reviewer permissions
(optional)
- Can review content of all files submitted to collection
- Can edit baseline metadata of all items
- Can accept or reject all submissions to collection
- Can send a message explaining decision
- Rejection will stop submission. Possible reasons: duplicates, item
does not adhere to UPSpace policy/ collection policy, incorrect
version of file/ file naming, formatting incorrect, etc.
- Acceptance will let submission go to next step
- Can edit metadata of all submissions to collection
(Cannot change files)

Persistent Identifiers in UPSpace
UPSpace uses the Handle System from CNRI to assign and resolve persistent identifiers for
each and every digital item. Handles are URN-compliant identifiers, and the Handle resolver
is an open-source system which is used in conjunction with the DSpace (UPSpace) system.
Handles in DSpace are currently implemented as URLs, but can also be modified to work with
future protocols. Additional development work would be required to adopt some other form of
persistent identifiers.
When citing items within the repository, end-users are required to use the persistent URL as
indicated on the Item Display of each item.
17.
Metadata Standards
Submitters can access UPSpace via the UP Portal, metadata can be entered into UPSpace,
stored in the database, indexed appropriately, and made searchable through the public
UPSpace UI. At the present time, this applies mainly to descriptive metadata, although as
standards emerge it could also include technical, rights, preservation, structural and
behavioral metadata.
Currently DSpace supports only the Dublin Core metadata element set.
UPSpace has been registered with OAISTER (http://oaister.umdl.umich.edu/o/oaister/ ), a
metadata harvester harvesting the digital resources of an institution like the University of
Pretoria. Through OAISTER freely available, previously difficult-to-access, academicallyoriented digital resources that are easily searchable by anyone will be made available to the
rest of the world.
Metadata from items are also retrievable via Google and GoogleScholar, and the repository
has been registered with the following:
Institutional Archive Registry
DSpace
Open Archives Institute
openDOAR
ROAR
Scirus
Wikipedia
UP Dept of Research
UP Library Catalogue
A Metadata Specialist has been assigned. This person has the responsibility to monitor the
overall quality of metadata within UPSpace, and plays and advisory role with regard to
metadata decisions. The Metadata Specialist has rights to editing the metadata of any item
within the repository.
LCSH’s are assigned to each item within the repository. Rationale for assigning LCSH’s: For
retrieval purposes it is very important to group material that belongs together by assigning
responding keywords or subjects. This is even more important within a digital environment.
The reason being that one should be able to create a hyperlink to a search result in UPSpace,
based on certain search criteria.
