Welcome to the UdG Digital Repository

About DUGiMedia
DUGiMedia is the audio and video repository of the University de Girona (UdG). As such, it preserves, disseminates and promotes the multimedia production of the service that records lectures, conferences and seminars organised at the University. It raises the UdG’s profile and incorporates tools for indexing and describing content, enhancing the value of the video and audio recordings and facilitating open and easy access to them from many other Internet sites (interoperability).
The Library Service is responsible for DUGiMedia, which uses open source software (DSpace, Postgres, SOLR, etc.), and is supported by an open source operating system (Linux).
The repository’s functions are:
  • to guarantee interoperability, ensuring that the documents in the repository can be located through other repositories and search engines that use the same industry standards, and through Google and other Internet search engines;
  • to increase the visibility and impact of the academic production of the UdG, applying search engine optimisation techniques (SEO) to promote items on the network and offer maximum visibility;
  • to index and make contents retrievable;
  • to compile a wide variety of documents in terms of media, subject matter and document type;
  • to allow mainstream access and use of the materials by other professors and students at the UdG and in the rest of the world;
  • to comply with EC and national open access guidelines and regulations;
  • to provide authority control, ensuring there are no duplicates of entry; and
  • to guarantee the UdG’s brand of quality.
The objectives of the repository are:
  • to increase the visibility of and access to the UdG’s scientific and academic production;
  • to add value to audio and video documents with indexing and standard bibliographic citation;
  • to protect the subsequent use of the multimedia documents and intellectual property rights through Creative Commons licences;
  • to ensure the preservation of materials in the repository and that each digital object has a permanent URL; and
  • to act as an archive of the UdG’s research and academic output and to facilitate subsequent uses (sharing and recycling material, avoiding duplication, etc.)
