This event is aimed at technical library and repository staff using the open-source EPrints software.

Morning Session: Repository Management and Configuration: This session will introduce some of the API, and show how to use the configuration files to modify the abstract page, set default values on newly created EPrints, change render methods on metadata fields, etc.

Afternoon Session: API Scripting and Plugins: A more in-depth look at the API. We'll cover exercises using scripts to manage the records in your repository and the changing of the behaviour of EPrints through plugin modification and creation.
