This presentation will provide an overview of the University of Stirling's REST API based integration between our recently implemented Worktribe CRIS system, which replaced our previous Converis-based CRIS, and our well established DSpace based Institutional Repository, "STORRE".

The integration is based around an intermediate application layer that sits between Worktribe and STORRE. Whenever an output is added to, or edited in, Worktribe, its details are sent to the application layer using Worktribe's built-in "PUSH Queue" mechanism. If the Output is eligible for
addition to, or update in, STORRE it is added to an intermediate STORRE Queue in the application layer. An overnight job then processes records on the STORRE Queue, exporting any eligible outputs from Worktribe to STORRE; calculating and applying any embargoes on the full text files in STORRE that may be required; and writing the DSpace Handle of any new records back to Worktribe.

The application layer also provides a number of web based tools to enable Repository Staff to review and process items on the intermediate STORRE Queue; explicitly export individual or multiple outputs to STORRE; resolve error conditions; and manage all the various mappings that are required to support the integration between the 2 systems.
