Regretfully, I am not able to attend the CETIS event on OER that is taking place in Glasgow on 22nd June. While the event is focussed on OER and learning object systems it will touch on many elements that will be familiar to developers and administrators of repositories in general. In particular there looks to be a focus on finding an using objects from repositories, drawing on the work of the ICoper project. Interoperability tools such as Atom/RSS feeds and OAI-PMH will form a major part of the event.

The day will be hands on with developers showing and sharing code and working together to sets the interoperbility of their platforms live. The organisers will record the event via their wiki and twitter (#cetisgath).

At RSP we’d be interested to know if this type of event would be of interest to the repository community, or do we tend to rely on the big vendors to provide this functionality for us?
