4.5.1 - The repository shall specify minimum information requirements to enable the Designated Community to discover and identify material of interest.

Introduction

SP's Designated Community should be able to discover and identify specific journals and articles easily within the repository. For this reason, each Provider agreement specifies minimum metadata requirements to be included in the SIP, based on the needs and expectations of the Designated Community. After ingest, all descriptive metadata stored in the ejournals database is indexed, and searchable by the Designated Community. In addition to search, SP provides interface functionality to allow users to browse by journal title and volume/issue.
