Digital Researcher 2011

I heard about this event on the twitter grapevine and signed up to attend: http://www.vitae.ac.uk/researchers/1269-314021/Digital-Researcher.html

  • Thought-provoking discussion with researchers made me realise that the terminology ‘repository’ is still a barrier in itself.
  • Context and relevance of social media i.e. ‘being present where they are’.
  • But issues with social media and open access in terms of impact and the REF; hopefully lack of impact balanced out by relationship building and networks.

RSP Winter School 2011

Anne Spalding, Repository and Digitisation Officer for UCA Research Online, and Kultivate Project Officer is attending the Repositories Support Project (RSP) Winter School 2011: http://www.rsp.ac.uk/events/winter-school-2011/

I am looking forward to catching up with Anne when she is back, but in the meantime the tweets about #rspws11 are almost as good as being there.
