Bath, UK A free hands-on SWORD workshop is among several events that are scheduled to take place in conjunction with the Fifth International Open Repositories Conference (OR10) that will be held July 6-9, 2010 in Madrid, Spain.
Have you heard about SWORD (http://www.swordapp.org/) but are unsure of why or how you should use it?
Members of the SWORD team will be running a free hands-on workshop at OR2010 that will provide an introduction to SWORD, some examples of how it can be used, and if you have a laptop you can try out some SWORD clients and have a go at making your own using an online SWORD client creation toolkit.
By the end of the workshop you’ll understand what SWORD is, how and where you should use it, and the new potential deposit avenues that it could open up for your repository.
Full details are at:

It will run from 2:15 until 4:30 on Friday 9th July. It is aimed at both technical and non-technical members of staff.
