As an academic research consortium charged with a pragmatic, multi-faceted task, the DRI is continually making decisions about the repository's scope, architecture, policies, and how to best serve user requirements.
We have released several publications, and will continue to do so as the project progresses. Similarly, we will soon post links to academic papers emerging from researchers on the project, and you can already view slide presentations from conferences and training events at our Slideshare account.
Full length publications offer an in-depth view of the project, but we also feel that shorter, specific statements about our decisions would be useful to our depositors and peers in the repository and digital preseravation communities. So, today we are launching the DRI Factsheet Series, with the online publication of our first factsheet: Metadata and the DRI.
