David Clover and his team in the Faculty of Maths, Computing and Technology (MCT) have done an excellent job with using ORO data to feed the people pages of their academics. See, for example Dr Michel Wermelinger‘s page within the Computing Department‘s site. Scroll down the page and you will see a chronologically ordered list of Dr Wermelinger’s publications, which can also be rearranged by item type using the “View by” drop-down menu. This list is generated using ORO data, as is noticeable when hovering over one of the publications, and is updated in real time. That is, when an academic deposits something new in ORO, it is pushed through immediately to their profile page in the MCT webpages.
This, in my opinion, is a crucial angle for success with institutional repositories: seemless integration with other university systems and websites. The benefits are mutual: for the academic, there is one single place to update their publications record; and for the repository, long-term engagement from individuals is ensured because academics will not want their faculty profiles to look out of date.
