Open Access and the increasing requirement of linking repositories address the need for an infrastructure that allows the users to access, discover and reuse the stored content. Against this background, a main objective in research and development is the support of user-oriented services across the digital subsystems by facilitating the work of repository managers and service managers, end users and meta-users as well as content aggregators and archivists.
This talk will observe strategies to support access and use of repositories seen in the light of subsystems in the global information management system, with an eye toward the establishment of an efficient repository services infrastructure in heterogeneous environments. Also new technological approaches on the creation of linked research, training and work environments will be in the scope of the talk by showing technical models that might meet the expectations of the end users for sustainable services across the repository subsystems within the landscape of the wider information system.
Dr. Fanny Klett has been with the Fraunhofer Institute Digital Media Technology since 2004 and established its research and business area Data Representation and Interfaces. In addition, she assumed the Directorship of the German Workforce Advanced Distributed Learning Partnership Laboratory, which is run in cooperation with the US Government, in 2009.
Fanny Klett holds a Ph.D. in Electronic Media Technology from Ilmenau University of Technology. Her research and development interests are directed to new technologies in the area of information and data management for human resources development, learning and training, competency and job performance management, data life cycle management, enterprise content management, collaborative systems, knowledge management, transfer of knowledge, e-assessment, digital libraries and repositories as well as sensor and data fusion for monitoring man-machine cooperation.
