The latest quick update from the Repository team meetings, every Friday at 14.00hrs in the Enterprise@Lincoln café!
- Staff from the faculty of Art, Architecture & Design are meeting Rosaline Smith in February to discuss the Kultivate project – I’m pleased that Kultivate is opening new lines of communication between the Repository and art/design researchers. Rosaline is also arranging some group training for the faculty of Agriculture, Food & Animal Sciences.
- Bev Jones has attended an RSP EPrints training day. The event covered aspects of technical management of an EPrints repository, and focused on maintaining and customising EPrints software.
- The Repository Steering Group met on Wednesday, 2 February. University Librarian Ian Snowley is now the chair of the group. Rosaline Smith presented a status report. The Repository team have a number of new actions, including getting a move on with the Steering Group’s long-standing aim to generate dynamic lists of individual authors’ outputs for personal pages on the University’s corporate website.
- We’re also going to look at improving the procedures for dealing with users’ requests for copies of articles which are not Open Access.
