From James Evans, Open Repository
Open Repository, a hosted DSpace-based repository solution from BioMed Central, was very pleased to attend and present at recent International conferences including the Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and the World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) held in Cape Town, South Africa.
Open Repository introduced its new high-value and low-cost service, Open Repository Lite, during its presentation entitled ‘Dissemination of output an issue? The solution is . . .’ The session was part of a special event supported by IFLA and the Committee on Freedom of Access to Information and Freedom of Expression (FAIFE). The presentation also focused on Open Repository’s partnership with Phi (Partnership in Health Information) and their joint initiative within Africa, which aligns within the BioMed Central Open Access Developing World initiatives.
The Open Repository team also enjoyed attending the Repository Fringe Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland. This year’s theme was “"Integrating repositories in the wider context of university, funder and external services".
