We are delighted to announce the launch of the 2008 RSP Summer School for managers of HE institutional repositories across England and Wales.

The RSP Summer School is an intensive three day residential course which aims to deliver a comprehensive programme to address the practical challenges and solutions to effective repository development. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in wide-ranging discussions about repositories and gain hands-on experience with a range of interactive seminars, practical workshops, lectures and panel sessions delivered by a range of expert practitioners. The focused sessions will be supplemented by a series of networking sessions and social engagements, all of the delightful surroundings of Thornton Manor on the Wirral.

Programme highlights include:

  • Metadata & Interoperability
  • Preservation
  • Advocacy
  • Legal issues
  • Repository statistics

Attendees at this summer school will become part of a supported repository community, with the summer school as the first in a planned series of activities to facilitate growth, communication and collaboration between participants.
