Hosted Repository Software: A seminar for repository managers

27th March 2008

SPLASH, University of Surrey, Guildford

Do you use one of the following products?

  • Digital Commons from BePress
  • Digitool from Ex Libris
  • E-Prints Services
  • Fedora/VITAL
  • IntraLibrary from Intrallect
  • Open Repository from BioMed Central

Do you want to meet other repository managers who are using the same software as you? If the answer is yes then this event is for you!

The RSP is facilitating a half day event aimed specifically at repository managers who work with hosted or commercial software solutions. The programme will contain a case study from the University of Surrey exploring some of the unique issues that face repository managers in this situation, along with plenty of opportunity for networking and discussion as part of both the wider group and in software based clusters.

As with all RSP events the day will be offered at no-cost to attendees. There are no limits on the number of delegates who are welcome to attend from any one institution although we recommend that to take the best advantage of the event participants should be actively using, or about to take on, one of the software solutions listed above.
