Repository Managers Event

The ERIS Project and SCURL are organising a joint workshop meeting on the 24th September at the Causwayside building of the National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh. The intention is to bring together key stakeholders, repository managers and digital curation experts, at a practical focused event to talk together and share perspectives, requirements, problems and solutions surrounding the issue of digital curation policy.

The workshop is part of the ERIS Project’s goal of producing collective recommendations for the next steps for repository managers in enabling the provision of practical, focused support, services and tools for the curation of their digital content.

Additionally, the workshop should further repository managers’ understanding of how to implement strategies and processes related to digital preservation and curation.

At the event the organisers will be discussing a survey which is being distributed on behalf of the ERIS project on institutional issues of curation policy, and will use the survey as a basis for discussion.

  1. Hi,

    I meant to ask about one of the objectives of the ERIS Project; namely, “develop the IRIScotland pilot into a trusted cross-repository resource discovery service, capable of providing access to a critical mass of Scottish research output.”

    Is this similar to the IREL-Open Project in Ireland?
    (http://www.irel-open.ie)

    • Yes, the thinking is that it would be similar to the Irish project. There is also a fair amount of similarity to the Welsh Repositories Network (http://whelf.ac.uk/wrn/index.shtml) and there is also a very interesting article in the most recent Dlib magazine about the OA-network (http://www.dlib.org/dlib/september09/mueller/09mueller.html) in Germany which mirrors a lot of the ‘vision’
