Overview/recap of Open Repositories (Chris)

  • There was less emphasis on individual solutions this time
  • People from around the world where present and talking about things they've done instead of just being there to learn.
  • Some attendees had chosen to build their own solutions from scratch
  • Three trends noted by Chris:
  • Focus on making the whole process user centered
  • Open access is still a trend. Repositories play a vital role in supporting open access
  • Research data and what it means to manage research data.
  • There was a samvera table. lots of participation
  • Samvera hex stickers were very popular.

Any matters to/from Steering
