In May 2018, UNC Libraries purchased a report from 1Science which listed 47,000 articles authored by UNC researchers. Although the vendor characterized the report as an out-of-the-box tool designed to fill an institutional repository, we found that it would take significant work to make it usable for UNC’s Hyrax-based institutional repository, the Carolina Digital Repository (CDR).

In this presentation, we will discuss the issues that we identified, including scripting errors, inconsistent metadata and rights concerns. We will describe the plans and processes to fix these issues and to adapt the metadata for our repository. Additionally, we will address best practices for uploads and future plans.
