AARRC (African Academic Research and Resource Centre) is an electronic platform with a huge tendency of addressing "the dearth of scholastic data" problem, "the working in silos" problem and many other problems attributed to Africa and her academics. AARRC is a collection of projects and the currently featured project on how web presence is RESource. How RESource@AARRC works is demonstrated here - https://resource.aarrc.info/RESource_Usage.mp4
The above demonstration shows the completion of the first phase of the project. The second phase focuses on the creation of a multi-instance site and publishing of the various works (journals, reports, e.t.c.) of the identified publishers (listed here - https://www.aarrc.info:3000/downloads) while giving them full rights to their works. Lists of other publishers are also being gathered.
After consultation on how we could integrate/deploy our service on the Africa Grid Science Gateway (http://sgw.africa-grid.org/), we realized that we should rather focus on taking another approach on the realization of the second phase of the project. As a result, we are now using the Invenio to implement the digital library. We intend extending it to include features that might not be readily available in it but available in a multi-instance authoring framework. Examples of the features would be a paywall and a CRM. While the base project 'AARRC' does not necessarily look like a project that 'fits' and could be integrated into the Africa-grid, we would continue to explore the catalina framework and how our future sub-projects or other projects could be plugged into it. Lastly, we intend applying to the Summer Hackfest 2016 in order to gain some more (practical) insights into Invenio.
Note: We would want to emphatically say that our platform (including RESource) is for sharing resource in the African academic context and we have only demonstrated it using the IEEE publisher. Given that the project and its sub-projects are at an immature/pre-release stage, (full) details of the stakeholders may not be provided, at least for now. In addition, questions that might require additional inputs from the team might suffer some delays in answering them. Thanks for your understanding. We look forward to your contributions and hope to contribute to some of your works.
