A short presentation on the Keepers Registry was given at the International Committee on EDI for Serials (ICEDIS) meeting held on Wednesday 28th May in the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow after the conclusion of the 2012 UKSG Conference.
ICEDIS brings together business and technical representatives from the world’s leading journal publishers and subscription agents. Together these trading partners are developing and defining industry standards for EDI and other e-commerce applications in facilitating journal subscription processing.
The presentation took the form of explaining the purpose of the Keepers Registry and mentioning the keepers who are currently supplying the metadata about the journals they are preserving.
Particular reference was made to the recent work which had been carried out by a number of the keepers, EDItEUR and EDINA in developing ONIX for Preservation Holdings (ONIX-PH). Version 0.21 of ONIX-PH is now available. It is hoped that ONIX-PH will, in due course, be used for the transmission of metadata from participating keepers to EDINA for ingest into the Keepers Registry.
