From Robin Taylor, Main Library, University of Edinburgh
Enjoying two successful years, the Repository Fringe Festival is back for the third time… and this year we have moved the event to the end of the Edinburgh Festival, and to the National eScience Centre. Registration is now open here:
Always innovative, and always looking forward, this year we are looking at the OPEN: Open Data; Open Access; Open Learning; Open Knowledge; Open Content; etc…
The programme for the event is, as ever, created by the participants, however there will be a focus on group discussion rather than long talks.
Pecha Kucha will make an appearance again, as will the round-table discussions… and we will be hosting a Great Debate on the Thursday Evening (with wine & nibbles.)
We are looking for submissions from managers, librarians, coders, educators & blue-sky thinkers; we are looking for Pecha Kucha talks & round-table discussion ideas…. and one of them we’ll take on for the Great Debate. Contact information for queries may be found here: http://eris.lib.ed.ac.uk/repofringe/?page_id=44.
We are also delighted to be able to offer space on Wednesday September 1 for anyone who wishes to host a meeting or workshop at that time.
