                          Organisational overview

The main public institutional bodies for
public water policy in France:

          The Ministry in charge of
          Ecology (MEDDTL)


          Water Agencies in France (6)
                    Water management in France

   The 1964 Water Law set out 6 large catchment areas for water resources
    management. 6 water agencies are responsible for the implementation of water
    policies in their basin.

   The 1992 Water Law strengthened this approach with the elaboration of water
    planning tools for each large catchment area

   The 2006 Water Law set out objectives and means to achieve good ecological and
    quality status : ONEMA is created
                    General information on ONEMA

   Governmental agency overseen by the Ministry in charge of Ecology (MEDDTL)

   Created by the French Water and Aquatic Environments Law, adopted on 30
    December 2006 and the related Decree of 25 March 2007

   All types of water systems (fresh/marine ; ground/surface)

   Acting on the whole French territory, including overseas territories

   Staff : 900, including 600 field technician

                 ONEMA is the reference technical agency for knowledge
                      and management of aquatic ecosystems
                       Two of its missions are to :

1 - Stimulate research and development
   Water framework Directive = Results oriented policy & evidence-based policy (good
    ecological and quality status of water bodies by 2015)

   The ONEMA and its French partners have pooled their research and development
    efforts to work together to preserve water quality and promote ecological well-being.

   This effort generates a great number of reports which have to be made accessible
    (available to the public)

2 - Manage the French water information system and produce some data

Onema is in charge of finding ways of sharing and pooling the information
from each aquatic management institution.
   The documentation & information center network
   The National portal

1- National framework of water management in France

2- The documentation & information center network

3- The national portal
   Origins : The documentation and information center
                   network « Fontaine »
A common bibliographic database:

1993 : Creation of the database “Fontaine”- contributors : water agencies + Ministry of Environment.
1994 5000 bibliographic records of the reports produced by the Agences de l’Eau (Water Agencies)
   and the Water Department of the Ministry of Environment
1996 Database appears on the OIEau website
1997 Database appears on the Eaufrance website and water agency website
   ( bibliographic records in the pdf format )

Common rules to all contributors:

1995 All contributors must use the “water” thesaurus to index documents
     This thesaurus, created by the water agencies and the OIEAU contains 3200 keywords and was
   published in 1998
1995 Indexing guide to fill in the fields in a standardized way
1996 A catalogue of magazines is published, listing the reviews, issue numbers,
     and dates available from each contributor
2003 A Water Framework guide is created and published in 2004
     Copyright contract is signed
2005 A working group examines the rules concerning the public access to information.
   A guide is realized from legal texts .
   The documentation and information center network
                      « RFCD »
The new, expanded information center network is a direct continuation of the old.
   It works toward the same goals and includes a larger number of contributors.
Contributors: 6 water agencies, office international de l’eau, Ministry of Ecology, research
   establishments and Onema

Documentary agencies work in conjunction with each other to share useful
    services such as :
- the distribution of laws and legislation gathered by the Water Legislation Watch (AE AP
    since 2004)
- the sharing of selected press articles

All of the water agency documentation and information centers have decided to
     pool their resources and work together in order to better promote their
     technical and scientific publications.
- through their inclusion in The national portal
- and also through our documentary policy which makes provision for the selective
     promotion of inter-agency publications by theme starting in 2011

3- The national portal
                                     The portal

Origins of the portal
2003 : Directive 2003/4 guarantees easy access to environmental information.
2006 : The Ministry of ecology observes that public technical reports about water are
    unknown and inaccessible to the public. It is decided to implement Directive 2003/4.
2008 : The Onema combines its own documents and those of Fontaine into one
The project increases
The working group now includes : technical librarians working in research establishments
    who contribute to the collaborative aquatic ecosystems database.
Main goals
- Look for other contributors, reference not only reports but different kinds of documents
    (articles, books…)
- Improve document management (identification and referencing of technical reports)
- Afford efficient access to pdf files, including geographical research

This portal, “Les documents techniques sur l’eau”, now comprises all aforementioned
    public-institution databases and is managed by the Onema with technical help from
    Office International de l’Eau.
                                              The portal

- Online since 19 June 2009, comprises 20 300 references

         Progressive adaptation of the contributors :

Each contributor must:

- Create and organize its own OAI repository.
- Be able to manage and export metadata documents using Dublin Core format.
- Create an http web server which is able to respond to simple requests by generating
    XML data streams.
- Make documents PDF files available on contributor’s own web site.
                                                    Technical structure
Dublin Core metadata is used to describe resources held, owned or produced by companies,
    governments and international organisations to supporting portal services or internal knowledge
    management. There are also implementations where Dublin Core metadata is used as a common
    exchange format supporting the aggregation of collections of metadata, such as the case of the
    Open Archive Initiative (OAI).
The Dublin Core metadata standard is a simple yet effective element set for describing a wide range of
    networked resources. The Dublin Core standard includes two levels: Simple and Qualified.
          Dublin Core simple                                                       Dublin Core qualifié

         Progressive adaptation of the contributors:

Contributors must :
- Register references
- Obey the rules in describing documents (fields : metadata provider, document provider,
    URL, geographical description)

Geographical fields: 4 kinds of information :
- codes to describe the area
    - Town, county, region (administrative codes INSEE)
- 3 codes to describe water
    - River (codes BD Carthage)
    - Underground water (codes BFRHF)
    - Lake, ponds (codes SANDRE)

Finding a document :
- The traditional method (words) search engine Polyspot
- The geographical method (rectangle on the map or region code)
- Combining both methods
Tools to help the librarians fill the geographic fields
Geographic search

- July 2010 : a new search engine Polyspot was configured

- December 2010 : geographical research method was developed

- 2011 :
    - geographical research method will be on line,
    - new contributors will participate,
    - saved searches will be available with e-mail alert
                                     Saved searches
