About The Speakers

Nick Sheppard

Nick will be talking about his experiences developing a “blended”repository for research and Open Educational Resources at Leeds Metropolitan University using the commercial repository platform intraLibrary.  In keeping with the theme of the day he will be focussing on the JISC funded ukoer project Unicycle- – describing the Application Profile that was used for the project as well as considering questions of metadata  interoperability in the context of JorumOpen - – and latterly the HEFCE funded ALPS CETL repository project – – which is exploring SWORD and OAI-PMH to facilitate selective deposit into multiple repositories and cross-search of those repositories.
