DSpace workshop

20th May 2011

Training Room ML 1.08, Main Library, University of Edinburgh, 30 George Square, Edinburgh, EH8 9LJ

This training day will cover aspects of technical management of an DSpace repository. Aimed at technicians working with established repositories it will focus on aspects of maintaining and customising the software rather than installation.

Training will be carried out by Rob Ingram from the RSP and Ianthe Hind,  Information Systems Developer at the University of Edinburgh and will cover essential information for developers and technicians who are involved in maintaining, configuring and enhancing repositories running on DSpace software. The programme has been developed following consultation with Dspace users in a recent survey.

The event will take place in a dedicated training facility at the University of Edinburgh.

Places are strictly limited to 15 delegates
