Report on the Digital Repositories Workshop in Oxford

On Thursday 23 April, the Digital Repositories Workshop was held successfully at the Oxford e-Research Centre. It represented a bridge between the Scoping Digital Repository Services for Research Data Management project and the recently JISC funded, and soon to be unveiled, Embedding Institutional Data Curation Services in Research (EIDCSR) project.

The workshop brought 37 delegates from a variety of colleges and departments in Oxford. The morning was dedicated to showcasing repository activities in the University. After this a technical session was held in the afternoon and this included a group task to address the following question:

"from your experience, what are the technical components required to manage and curate research data in Oxford, why and what developments are more urgent?"
