RSP Launches First Three Briefing Papers

4th January 2008, by

Concise overviews of key topics in repositories now available

The RSP is pleased to announce the publication of their first three briefing papers:

Key Stakeholders & Benefits [Paper]

An outline of the main stakeholders involved in an institutional repository and the advantages a repository manager should promote to each group.

Promotion [Paper]

Guidance on the key aspects of promoting of your repository from defining your core message through to a variety of promotion activities.

Repository Policy Framework [Paper]

Information about giving structure to your repository planning through the implementation of a policy framework.

Briefing papers are a significant output for the RSP team and will act as concise introductions to key topics of interest to the community. The titles produced to date form part of a pack of papers designed specifically for repository administrators and physical copies of these packs will be made available at our various outreach events.

Further titles in the series of papers aimed at repository administrators are currently in production, along with an additional pack of papers addressing issues of relevance to senior managers involved in repository discussions. The RSP would be interested to hear from you if you have ideas for future briefing paper titles that you would like to see.

All Briefing Papers are available as part of the Publication section of the RSP Website.
