Repository Fringe 2013

Posted on September 3, 2013 | in DLS, events, Featured, Library, technical | by


Repository Fringe 2013 ran from July 31- August 2 in the Dugald Stewart Informatics Building. It was, yet again, a successful event, with around 85 attendees over the three days.

Highlights included:

  • Inspiring keynote lectures from Jacqui Taylor (Flying Binary) and Mark Hahnel (Figshare)
  • Informative workshops from Chris Gutteridge (Southampton) and Chris Awre (Hull) discussing Linked Data and a Repository for the Future respectively
  • Pecha Kuchas and presentations on a wide variety of subjects pertaining to development tools, open source issues, and upcoming challenges in the repository arena
  • A lively developers challenge, which served up interesting solutions for metadata extraction, preservation techniques and copyright embedding. It was won by Russell Boyatt (Warwick), with an interesting approach to MOOCs.
  • The OJS day was effectively part of the event too.

Slides and videos from Repository Fringe are available at:

Thanks to Claire Knowles, Robin Taylor, Theo Andrew and Norman Rodger, from the Research and Learning area, who were heavily involved in the organisation of the event, which was unflappably chaired by Nicola Osborne (Edina).
