Repository Services Day

15th January 2009, by

On the 15th of January the Repositories Support Project held an event at the University of Bath to introduce repository managers and administrators to a range of services available to help them in the day-to-day management of their repositories.

Presentations from Sonja Brage from Lund University and Friedrich Summann from the University of Bielefeld were well received, with delegates having no shortage of questions.

Also well received were presentations on vital tools such as RoMEO, OpenDOAR and ROAR by Jane H. Smith and Peter Millington from the University of Nottingham which enabled delegates to pose questions about the practicalities of these services.

Delegates had the opportunity to learn about Intute Repository Search and EThOS from Vic Lyte (MIMAS) and Anthony Troman (British Library).

Also well received was a practical workshop led by Stephanie Taylor from UKOLN, which enabled delegates to discuss matters in more depth. Throughout the day, delegates were free to ask questions and liaise with RSP representatives to receive support to any issues arising in their own institutions.

Feedback from the event was very positive and presentations are now available on the RSP website. Further RSP events are to be announced shortly.
