PERSoNA (Personal Engagement with Repositories through Social Networking Applications)

The JISC funded PERSoNA project will develop alongside our main repository project (software to be announced very soon!) and the related Streamline project with the main aim of building a community of users and promoting use of the repository amongst that community via social networking applications.

Such applications may include social network websites (Facebook is the most well known but Nature Network is a comparable site exclusively for scientists); blogs, wikis and social bookmarking sites (eg del.icio.us).

We hope to facilitate an interactive environment whereby staff using the repository are able to connect with one another to recommend and share resources in a way that will mitigate the anonymity of the web and build a community of trust.

The first stage of the project is to identify a pilot group of stakeholders to consult on their current use of social networking applications.

Project updates will appear on the dedicated blog called, you guessed it, PERSoNA News.
