Project Update: The Next-Generation Digital Repository Service

February 18, 2014—Work on migrating to the next-generation Digital Repository Service (DRS) continues with several accomplishments since the January update:

  • A new web page to inform users about the status of the new DRS was launched. The page includes up-to-date information about the migration, including a timeline of activities (see above) and new functions being built in DRS.
  • The Frances Loeb Library at the Graduate School of Design began depositing electronic theses and dissertations to the new DRS.
  • Four targeted meetings were held to address specific department and format needs, including meetings with DRS users at the Harvard Art Museums, the Harvard College Library Judaica Division and a group of users interested in depositing disk images from portable media.

Upcoming milestones include:

  • An open meeting for DRS users about the migration plan, February 26, 10am.
  • Descriptive Metadata Working Group meetings will occur through March.
  • A software release with more functions such as bulk processing is planned for March.
  • Metadata migration continues through 2014 and possibly into 2015 (see image above).
