RSP Winter School 2009

25th February 2009 - 27th February 2009

New Lanark Mill Hotel, ML11 9DB, Scotland

This event allowed delegates to take stock of the repository landscape and learn about existing projects and new developments which could influence plans for the future.

As a residential event run over three days, delegates had plenty of opportunity to meet colleagues from other institutions from around the UK and share knowledges, experiences and best practice. The event had a lively programme with a variety of presentations and workshops, delivered by a range of expert practitioners.

The focused sessions were complemented by a series of networking sessions and social engagements, all of which took place in the fascinating surroundings of the New Lanark Mill Hotel.
