I’m in at the University of Edinburgh today for one day of Open Repositories 2012 (#or2012), “The 7th International Conference on Open Repositories“. I gave a Pecha Kucha-style (20 slides @ 20 seconds per slide) presentation about the work of UKCoRR, the UK Council of Research Repositories.
Here are the slides. They won’t make a huge amount of sense on their own, but you’ll get the idea.
If you’re a repository worker in the UK and would be interested in joining UKCoRR (it’s free!), sign up to the JISCMail list, at: http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/lists/UKCORR-DISCUSSION.html – membership of UKCoRR is open to “anyone working directly in UK research repository administration. It is not intended to be open to publishers, commercial suppliers, students, research funders, academics or researchers, or general open access project staff, except where people have a position in repository administration“.
