Workshop for Repository Administrators

11th August 2010

Harris Manchester College, Mansfield Road, Oxford, OX1 3TD

Many events in the area of open access and repositories are aimed at managers and often cover more strategic issues. The workshop focused on the more pragmatic aspects of repository work and as such appealed to repository administrators. Subjects included:copyright checking, metadata, workflows, dealing with publishers and linking with other university systems. There was a mixture of formal presentations and discussion.
