First objective of the JISC-supported Sonex initiative was to identify and analyse deposit opportunities (use cases) for ingest of research papers (and potentially other scholarly work) into repositories. Later on, the project scope widened to include identification and dissemination of various projects being developed at institutions in relation to the deposit usecases previously analyzed. Finally, Sonex was recently asked to extend its analysis of deposit opportunities to research data.

Sonex to contribute to RFC version of Cookbook

As of Oct 14th the project released the RFC version of its 'Digital Library Technology and Methodology Cookbook'.

According to, "the Cookbook is aimed at collecting and describing a portfolio of best practices and pattern solutions to common challenges faced when it comes to developing large-scale interoperable Digital Library systems. The current version of the Cookbook should not be considered neither authoritative nor final but rather as a 'work in progress' with the aim of enhancing it through external feedback".

After the Sonex work was presented last September at the 2nd workshop held in Glasgow, Sonex reached an agreement with as to provide technical feedback on the Cookbook regarding those usecase scenarios identified by Sonex.
