EPrints User Group Meeting

The EPrints User Group will take the form of a technology briefing and demonstrations of the following important repository functions:

(a) EPrints for RQF - EPrints-based tools for gathering evidence portfolios to support research assessment. Plus, EPrints tools for helping research managers aggregate and assess a group's portfolio.

(b) EPrints Web Services - a key facility for closer integration with institutional systems, and a way to develop new interfaces, bespoke deposit procedures or tailored reporting facilities on the development platform of your choice.

(c) Data Repositories - how to create and maintain EPrint archives of research data for e-research.

(d) Multimedia repositories - how to create and maintain EPrint archives of multimedia material.

(e) Promoting Individual and Group Research - how to create and maintain up-to-date bibliographies for all your researchers to feature on their home pages. How to create RSS feeds of the latest research from your schools, departments or research groups.

(f) One for All or All for One? - how to provide separate departmental identities in one institutional repository vs how to manage a collection of repositories.

We hope to see you there if you are an EPrints user, if you aren’t a user of anything at all, or if you want to learn what the most widely used repository software can do. EPrints is a low cost, stable, high functionality platform for open access institutional repositories.
