Open Access and Repositories in the Arts

16th July 2009, by

The Repositories Support Project is pleased to announce that presentations from Tuesday's successful event, The Role of Open Access and Repositories in the Arts: A Forum for Discussion are now available on the RSP website.

This timely event brought together librarians, research managers and information professionals from colleges of art, design, music, drama and communications, to explore issues surrounding open access to outputs in these fields.

Speakers included Andrew Gray from the KULTUR Project, Richard Davis from the University of London Computer Centre, who spoke about the PRIMO Project, Rachel Proudfoot from the White Rose Repository Consortium and international copyright specialist Charles Oppenheim.

The meeting was hosted in the delightful Council Room at the British Academy in Carlton House Terrace, London. Organised with specialists in these fields in mind, the event gave delegates plenty of chance to meet one another and catch up with colleagues over a delicious lunch.

There was plenty of opportunity for delegates to ask questions of each of the speakers, and the day concluded with a plenary discussion, with speakers able to answer the many questions the audience had.
