Thanks to Lou for arranging for me to speak to library staff as part of the STARS programme this week. And thanks to everyone that came along. On Monday I spoke to 27 people at Civic and today there were about 25 so that’s around 50 staff who now (hopefully!) have a greater awareness about the repository project and Open Access.
As at last week’s CRI seminar, some very interesting perspectives were raised and there are a number of issues that crop up again and again.
Very briefly and from memory some of the recurrent themes are:
- Software testing/usability of interface
- Versioning in the repository
- Repository content – will content be limited to peer-reviewed output? What about book chapters (monographs)?
I intend to start compiling a list of FAQs and with this in mind it would be very useful if people could contact me with any specific questions they may have (or think others may ask) either in person, through this blog or by email.
