Writing about web page http://wrap.warwick.ac.uk
We're almost ready to publicise our live repository. We've got 50 items in there, and there are plenty of other items lined up to go in. But we keep coming across small hurdles with getting the software working properly. The latest issue is that the Browse lists don't seem to be working properly. But Search is, and you can see all 50 items by ticking every Item Type on the search form. And the RSS feeds seem to be working too, so I saved my all Item Types search and I've subscribed to it on Bloglines. So I can keep an eye on what's been added to the repository from there, as well as from the Latest Additions page.
Christina is our Metadata specialist and she's been creating some top quality metadata records. We're going to see if there is any more we can do to process the items before she gets the details, to speed up the metadata creation.
And I've been looking to register WRAP with all the various registries and directories, etc. The RSP guide on increasing usage (http://www.rsp.ac.uk/usage/registries) is proving very helpful.
So, I hope we get that Browse function working soon. 'Cos this blog mention is one way of publicising the repository... :-)
