Overall, the event was excellent and the projects have agreed a number of joint initiatives, including working with RMAS and potentially CASRAI.

Repositories Support Project – Embedding Guide and Toolkit

December 14, 2011 Leave a comment

The Repositories Support Project Embedding Guide and Toolkit has been published by the Repositories Support Project and will help institutions to get the best value from their institutional repositories through integration with other university systems, particularly research management systems.

 It is aimed at repository staff but will be of interest to other groups such as academic librarians and research management staff.

 Over the past few years, there have been a number of JISC funded projects and other institutional initiatives which have focused on the embedding of research repositories into organisational systems, policies and workflows. The results have been documented in websites, blogs, conference presentations etc but they have not been synthesised into a coherent whole. This guide aims to do just that.
