Around the Edges: Repository Fringe Festival
Submitted by on Tue, 2009-09-15 16:03
Edinburgh, UK The Repository Fringe Festival was held from July 30-31 and was attended by repository managers and developers from the UK and beyond. The event, sponsored by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and hosted by Edinburgh University’s school of Informatics, was informal and the agenda was definitely “unconference” style. Presentations focusing on hybrid paper/digital deposit repository systems and streamlined scholarly workflows were presented by attendees who had self-selected to be part of the RFF program. The goal of the meeting was to encourage discussion of emerging repository issues and to come up with perhaps “fringy” ideas about how to solve problems.
