New link between ANDS Demo and Trove Test

We are pleased to inform you that the new link between ANDS Demo (demo.ands.org.au) and Trove Test (trove-test.nla.gov.au/people) is now functional. This link makes the party records in Trove Test visible to ANDS Demo, and as a result you can test how your records in Trove Test will appear in ANDS Demo. The complete test for NLA integration workflow (ANDS Workflow 1) includes the following steps:

  1. Set up an OAI-PMH interface for Trove Test harvest.
  2. Add one or more party records through the OAI-PMH interface to Trove Test.
  3. Resolve unmatched record(s) in TIM Beta (https://www.nla.gov.au/tim-beta/app). At the end of this step you should be able to see your records in Trove Test.
  4. Retrieve the NLA party identifiers using Trove API (https://wiki.nla.gov.au/display/ARDCPIP/Party+Infrastructure+APIs) (link updated 20-02-2013) or for the purpose of this test you can find them manualy by searching the name of the party records in Trove Test.
  5. Set up an OAI-PMH interface for ANDS Demo.
  6. Add one or more collection records to ANDS Demo with the NLA party identifier as the key in the related object element of these records.
  7. After 24 hours the NLA party records should appear under the NLA group in ANDS Demo (http://demo.ands.org.au/search#!/p=1/tab=All/group=National Library of Australia), and they will be linked to the collection(s).

NLA Trove waypoints and TIM workshop/webinar

At eResearch 2012 it was suggested that ANDS conduct a Workshop/Webinar on matching names in the Trove Identities Manager (TIM). We are now attempting to get the timing right so that this workshop comes at a time when you are ready. We need to see where you are up to.

There would appear to be five waypoints where you have:

1. Completed Trove registration

2. Integrated into the Trove test environment
You may also recall a post relating Testing your NLA Party Infrastructure.


3. Integrated into Trove production


4. Retrieved NLA Identifiers
  • To complete this you should have retrieved one or more NLA identifiers and stored them in your local systems.

5. Supplied ANDS with the linked collections to NLA identifiers
  • To complete this you should have provide ANDS with the NLA identifiers in one of the following forms:
    • Workflow 1: as a related object to a collection, or
    • Workflow 2: as an identifier for a party record

Please let me know [simon.pockley@ands.org.au] where your project is up to. I will follow with an email reminder.

A short note about ORCID, ANDS and the NLA

The ORCID identifying space is not the same as the NLA/Trove space, and each has different functionality and will serve different purposes. For example, the former would be useful for researchers who may wish to have multiple identities and the latter more useful for institutions seeking an authoritative ID.

ORCID only launched in production a few weeks ago. If you have had a play with ORCID you would have seen that some of the functionality is 'in construction'. ANDS is planning to support it in our identification infrastructure next year. 'Under the hood' - ORCID Identifiers are actually International Standard Name Identifiers (ISNI) and the two organisations (See ISNI and ORCID) are also working through any issues of complementary models and shared approaches. Identities from the National Library of Australia have already been uploaded to the ISNI space.

In the meantime, ORCID identifiers can be included as Identifiers in Party records (for Research Data Australia) where appropriate. There has been a request to Services to include ORCID as an Identifier type

14th November 2012 change to Data Surgery

The regular weekly data surgery at 10:00am on Wednesday 14th November will be replaced next week by a 2:00pm (Adelaide time) video conference for those institutions that are using both ReDBox and ResearchMaster.

The video conference is being organised by Amanada Nixon who thought it might be a good idea to get together and discuss your different approaches.

Amanda is not envisaging anything too formal. If you would like to attend and have not received a calendar invitation, please contact Amanda and she will get back to you with the details.

The video conference will be held on Wednesday 14th November at 2:00pm Adelaide time.
