Digital repositories

Writing about web page http://www.eservices.hull.ac.uk/repommansurvey/

After the popularity of my post on the e-thesis software last week, I thought I'd highlight a project at the University of Hull this time.

The RepoMMan project aims to develop software to enable researchers to deposit material in a digital repository. In a similar way to the thesis software that I mentioned earlier, this software is intended to be used throughout the process of creation of the research writing, and helps to generate metadata.

At the moment the project is surveying researchers to help them to design their tool. Another one to watch, in my opinion as I still think there is a role for repositories, although the practicalities of building them are being ironed out at present.

Since the e-thesis posting we currently are investigating a project to assess how much research writing has been posted onto the University of Warwick website already, independently of any repository, along the lines of John Dale's suggestion.
