A UKRepNet Project presentation will be delivered at the 4th Annual Meeting of the Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR). The 2013 COAR Annual Meeting will be held next May 7-8 at the Özyeğin University Library in İstanbul, Turkey with a focus on repository interoperability. The UKRepNet presentation aims to raise the profile of the Green Open Access initiatives being carried out in the UK and to explain the specific actions the project is taking in order to enhance the UK IR network.
Aware that institutional repositories are gradually becoming embedded in larger institutional RIM systems, the UKRepNet presentation will reflect on the way these new services should jointly be delivered by IRs and CRIS systems. The work RepNet is carrying out in cooperation with partner institutional stakeholders in this regard will also be presented, together with its goal for delivering best practices on how to serve different institutional system configurations.
