The draft programme for Repository Fringe 2016, which will take place on 1st & 2nd August at the University’s John McIntyre Conference centre, is now available.
Now in its ninth year and described as “the UK repository community’s unmissable gathering”, this may be of interest to some of you.
The programme draws on the following three themes, for which the keynote speakers have also now been confirmed:
- Open educational resources Dr Martin Poulter, University of Bristol – ‘Your OERs will outlast you: open education in the long term’
- The nuts & bolts of open Nina Karlstrøm, Current Research Information System in Norway (CRIStin) – ‘More than just a CRIS: how CRIStin is building a national infrastructure for open access’
- Making a difference with data Erinma Ochu, University of Manchester – ‘The social life of data’.
The programme will also feature a Wikidata and Wikisource showcase, the details of which will be available shortly, repository platform user group sessions and panel discussions on ‘Using datasets in teaching’ and ‘Sustaining content & collections: open educational resources, open access, open data’.
