Nottingham, UK The latest event for the Repository Support Project: "Repositories and CRIS (Current Research Information Systems): Working smartly together. Conference and Software Exhibition," will take place at Nottingham University Park Conference Centre on July 19, 2011. This one-day event is free of charge to participants.
This event will explore the interaction of Repositories and CRIS systems and share findings of the JISC funded RePosit Project, which seeks to increase uptake of a web-based repository deposit tool embedded in a researcher-facing publications management system.
