Just Another Repository for Scholars

JARS is an extremely minimalistic data repository implemented in Django 1.7. In contrast to monolithic one-stop-shop repository packages that require an army of developers to support, JARS focuses on providing bare-minimum data and metadata storage out of the box.

Some notable features:

  • Supports just about any metadata schema that can be expressed in RDF,
  • Can interface with remote authority services, and include references to remote resources in metadata,
  • Provides a simple REST API for interacting with your resources,
  • Can talk to a Handle server to generate unique handles for resources,
  • Curate and retrieve collections of resources (e.g. a corpus for text mining), including remote resources.
  • Friendly and simple content access control for projects working with copyright or otherwise restricted data.

The target audience is primarily scholars working with digitized texts that need a more robust storage facility than whatever mess is on their harddrive, and need stable URIs.
