August 11, 2009
Recent additions to WRAP have been nearly all theses, and today we have added our first multi-media item (http://wrap.warwick.ac.uk/1156/). This is partly because we get batches of theses through from the Graduate School, so our metadata librarian deals with them all in one go, and partly also because the E-repositories assistant who processes submissions through our deposit form has been on holiday for two weeks, and then again partly because, when I tried to process some items in her absence, we have been locked out of Sherpa Romeo and all things on the Nottingham Uni web domain and that has only been fixed for me today!
So, theses it has been: both the ones submitted to us in the last academic year, and also the ones digitised through the Ethos project. We could have waited for Ethos to send us them in a download, but we decided to download them individually for ourselves.
Hopefully we will be back to more of a balance with journal articles very soon, however, as our E-repositories assistant returns tomorrow...
Meanwhile, I am busy preparing for my first meeting of the UK Council of Research Repositories as their chair, which is on Friday.
