This article describes the workflow used to ingest faculty publication
citations into a Digital Commons platform Institutional Repository, by
repurposing metadata harvested from the Web of Science using web services.
This approach, along with a workflow, were developed to improve the
populating process for the IR. Improving upon the previous manual process,
this approach automates most of the collecting and ingesting process and
greatly improves ingesting efficiency. A discussion of the benefits and
limitations of the new approach is also provided.
