The Glasgow School of Art and JISCrte
September 27, 2011 Leave a comment
The aim of this #jiscrte project is to enhance the interface of the research repository at The Glasgow School of Art, through the development of a new repository – RADAR (Research art design architecture Repository) – using EPrints.
GSA’s current research repository was developed in preparation for RAE2008 and is based on a FileMaker database. Robin explained that the GSA research repository would be greatly enhanced through the application of EPrints, and some of the benefits include:
- EPrints will be optimised for REF2014
- Many of the UK arts institutes use EPrints – interoperability is key
- Development of a user-friendly repository that can be tailored to the needs of GSA staff
Robin has presented on the challenges of building a repository and progress made thus far, have a look at his presentation at the Repository Fringe in August, available from here.
