How embedded and integrated is your repository?

10th February 2012

Nottingham Conference Centre, Nottingham Trent University

The JISC Repositories: take-up and embedding projects (JISCrte) aim to improve the institutional services that rely on the repository by enabling take-up of the lessons and benefits from the most successful repository applications, tools and good practice.

This free one day event organised by JISC and the Repositories Support Project (RSP) aims to showcase the work of the following JISC Information Environment Programme Repositories: take -up and embedding projects (JISCrte):

  • eNova - Visual Arts Data Service (VADS); University for the Creative Arts; and University of the Arts, London
  • MIRAGE - Middlesex University
  • NECTAR - University of Northampton
  • RADAR - Glasgow School of Art
  • Hydra in Hull - University of Hull
  • EXPLORER - De Montfort University

The embedding repositories guide and self-assessment tool has been published by the Repositories Support Project (RSP) and it aims to help institutions achieve the best vest value from their repositories through integration with other university systems, particularly research management systems.

This free one day event will be held in Nottingham City Centre at the Nottingham Conference Centre.
