Organize a transfer application between IFPRI and CGSpace to allow metadata import.
Testing in July, work in progress, first demo will be available on October 18, 2016.

August 2016

ORCID fields need to be determined to meet cgcore requirements ORCID is stored in a virtual field called "atmire.orcid.id" that is not accessible to REST/OAI, bug/feature request logged with DSpace
needs a new field
check the IFPRI ORCID usage during import
August ?

Explore and test harvesting to AGRIS
Peter then Abenet
July 2016

Results of the tests:
- we submitted ILRI publications collection as a test
- they made enrichment/additions to the metadata based on the title and abstract provided (fields affected are AGROVOC, geographical information and language); this will be published if we agree
- there isn’t any checking platform after enrichment is done (although XML file is available)
- they are waiting on an FAO side update to correct source of ILRI contents added as CIAT, I was unable to identify who provided those items for submission.

Tsega and Sisay to find a way by which the XML can be readable for checking

Set up CGSpace REST API application to generate metadata for other ILRI projects

August 2016,work will continue on this after finishing up the IFPRI importer the October 16-21 week. Demo will be made available on October 25, 2016.
