RSP assists Bradford University Repository Project Developments

Two members of the RSP technical team, Stuart Lewis and Chris Yates recently visited Bradford University to assist with the installation of the DSpace repository platform for the BURP! (Bradford University Repository Project). The aim of the JISC funded BURP! project is to set up an open access digital institutional repository for Bradford's scholarly content in a variety of formats, including text, sound, images and film. DSpace is the repository platform chosen by Bradford.

"We found the day excellent and the training was very clear."

During the day Stuart and Chris worked with the project manager Polly Dawes and their systems administrator Sue Gregson to install and integrate DSpace. The work included setting up the Oracle database, installing DSpace, integrating it with the local LDAP authentication system and discussing customisation options.
