The main technical requirement for the I-WIRE project is to create a deposit tool that can be hosted within Cardiff University’s Modern IT Working Environment. This tool will enable the deposit of repository items into ORCA from within the university portal. A secondary requirement is to make the data and search options in ORCA available in the university portal. This includes surfacing publication lists for individual authors that can be used in any number of university systems.The integration challenge was made all the greater as the repository and portal technologies had been selected and implemented by prior unrelated projects, when integration was not a requirement. The development team investigated and evaluated integration options for the deposit protocol and also investigated and evaluated suitable approaches for browsing and searching the data, and for an automated HTML feed. This poster will explain the finding and conclusion of each of these evaluations, along with the recommended integration solution for the project.
