As part of its commitment to excellence in student-centred learning, Griffith University has initiated the Learning@Griffith project to assist in the delivery of the University's teaching, learning and research goals. A core component of this project is to integrate a digital repository system. This paper outlines the partnership recently formed between HarvestRoad and Griffith University to implement Hive, a high-use, centralised, federated digital repository service through the provision of a range of client-focused bureaus (digital collections), search and access facilities, and workflow administration systems. Copyright management and compliance are also discussed. A number of start-up bureaus are being established including an art image collection, digitized exams, and an ePrint service. The next phase includes the transfer of teaching and learning objects for all courses. Processes will be differentiated based on whether copyright ownership is internal or external to Griffith.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
