Project summary

The RepoMMan Project is developing a tool which will allow users to interact with a Fedora digital repository as part of their natural workflow. The University of Hull takes a broad view of repository function, seeing it as offering storage, access, management and preservation of a wide range of objects from conception to completion and possible publication. The effectiveness of a repository is linked to the quality of its metadata. When a user chooses to make an object 'public' the RepoMMan tool will pre-populate its metadata using contextual information and metadata generation tools. The user is then able to refine this automated 'first-pass'.
