The Rise and Rise of Digital Repositories: Communication and Quality

A session at IWMW 2006 (Institutional Web Management Workshop)

Wednesday 14th June, 2006

4:15pm to 5:45pm (GMT)

The discussion group will begin with an overview of the current repository landscape, looking at the different types of repositories, their use within education and the range of issues relating to repositories, including cultural, social, legal, technical and policy considerations. Current JISC work in this area will be highlighted, focussing on how this work will contribute to raising quality standards in repository development, through interoperability and the use of open standards.

Participants will work in groups and will be assigned roles for the following stakeholders:

students and researchers
librarians and information managers
department and institution managers
Web and IT managers

Groups will be asked to examine the issues raised from the various perspectives and to try and identify the barriers and possible solutions to the implementation and uptake of repositories. At the end of these discussions, each group will feedback their conclusions.

The session hopes to demonstrate the importance of communication between stakeholders for the successful implementation and use of repositories.
