Successful implementation of the RQF will be achieved only with a repository in place for each university. Whether this is hosted locally or elsewhere, it is clear that all universities will need to invest in this facility. Representatives of the open source software community and selected commercial suppliers will demonstrate what their systems have to offer.

Who should attend?

Those who want to assess different repository systems in preparation for the RQF.


All the major open source systems will be represented as will select commercial repository suppliers.


$55 per person. This charge includes lunch and morning tea and GST.

This amount is subsidised by the Australian Partnership for Sustainable Repositories and ARROW which are funded by the Department of Education, Science and Training as part of the Commonwealth Government's "Backing Australia's Ability - An Innovative Action Plan for the Future".
