First and Largest Academic Social Network of LIS Professionals in India
Many academic institutions around the world have made the decision to digitize their scholarly output and research into the format of a repository in an effort to “manage their educational research more effectively and transparently than in the past” (Hayes, 2005). Such digital collections are known as Institutional Repositories.
They offer the opportunity for academic libraries to collect, preserve and disseminate the institution's scholarly output. Institutional repositories make it possible to collect content in one location, capture and provide open access to the intellectual output of a university, as well as preserve content that may be otherwise unavailable or out of publication. Published materials such as post-print, journal papers, book chapters, and conference papers make up a significant portion of the content of many IR’s. Unpublished or gray materials such as pre-prints, working papers, thesis and dissertations, professor lectures, technical reports, progress/status reports, and committee reports are some examples of other types of content some IR’s will contain.
The IRs are created using various software like the DSpace, e-Prints, Greenstone etc. Among these DSpace, an Open Free solution developed by the MIT is used widely all over the world.
Librarians need to know how to install, customize, administer and use these repositories and it is an essential skill expected from the present day information professional. Keeping this view in mind the Knowledge Centre of Digital University Kerala has decided to conduct an one week (from 9th May 2022 to 13th May 2022) advanced level program on Dspace.
All librarians and Information professionals are invited to join this training program.
