Metadata repository - resources distributed across multiple sites and services. provides a more sustainable and scalable approach (especially with respect to video)

OER files sit outside in spaces belonging to each of the institutions (or external sites) and then the OER records in the 'repository (built in Drupal) will link out the these locations - see diagram: http://blogs.bath.ac.uk/oer/2010/11/01/the-ostrich-oer-d-repository/

"We planned a single repository for OSTRICH, based at Bath, in addition to the JorumOpen version of all OERs. The storage of media locally is appropriate, so for example if Derby wants to (or Bath requires Derby to) host their own video files that the OERs use, that's fine. The OERs can be based in the normal repository at Bath, linking out to the relevant videos hosted on a Derby server."
