Research Repository Managers Symposium @ Educause

Filed under: Educause,ERA,SEER — caulcairss @ 5:37 pm

Please note – The CAIRSS blog has relocated to

Educause Australasia Conference (3-6 May Perth)

Some of the case studies from this repository event are now available online at:
Please note they are still being added to.

Would be great to hear from any CAUL Repository Managers who attended.

I have picked up the following comments from participants:

  • ERA has taken over ‘traditional’ repository establishment activities in 2009 for many
  • Very honest discussions took place
  • Discussion on the need to ‘act together’ rather than go it alone (esp. for lobbying)
  • Concerns for sustainability of CAIRSS-like service (what happens when the funding runs out in 2 years)
  • Repository Managers feel isolated. Want more opportunities to discuss topics with their Repository Manager peers at other institutions
  • CAIRSS to organise a similar event at the 2011 Educause Conference
