|The I-WIRE Project - A Repository Enhancement Project|
Just a quick update today. MePrints, an offshoot of EPrints, has just been brought to our attention. This is something we are interested in exploring as it is a more user-friendly version of the EPrints system, and gives users details of their recent publications and number of hits. These user-centred portal features are what the I-WIRE Project is setting out to achieve, so this is of great interest to us.
In other news, we are still ploughing through the requirements captured, focusing on what is achievable within the timescale and scope of the project. We've had three analysis sessions, and have two more scheduled for this week. Our requirements report is due at the end of January, and we also have a visit from Andy McGregor, our JISC project manager, tomorrow - a very busy week for us! Andy's visit is well-timed howver as we are wrapping up our requirements phase and moving into design and development.
Happy New Year! Just a quick update of where we are with the I-WIRE Project. We have completed almost all our planned interviews with representatives from a cross-section of schools and divisions and have collated all the requirements from those interviews and the modelling sessions. Now the core project team are going to sit down and go through all these requirements to determine which are feasible within the scope of the project, within the time-frame we have, and what will be sustainable beyond the end of the project's lifetime. Wish us luck as we have over 100 requirements to analyse and discuss!
Finally the I-WIRE Project Team is in place! Scott Hill is Project Manager, Louise Harrington the Project Support Officer, Tracey Andrews is Repository Manager and Jim Colhoun Technical Developer.
Scott and Louise both started on Monday 12th October and spent the first week getting to grips with the project requirements and oustanding issues. Updating this blog regularly will be a major ongoing feature of the project.
Our next step is to start work on the requirements capture.
Welcome to the blog for the JISC funded I-WIRE (Integrated Workflow for Institutional Repository Enhancement) Project.
