Technology words for repository managers | UKCoRR

From the blog post: “The role of the repository manager is constantly evolving. The repository manager of today needs to be aware and interpret not only their affiliated institution’s open access policies, but also the national and international ones that emerge from public funding agencies. The proliferation of these policies introduces technical requirements for repositories, the use of current research information systems (CRIS) and the installation of various plug-ins for example, and often repository managers serve as intermediary between the IT department of their institution and their supervisors or library directors and have to communicate messages and requests. A couple of months ago on the UKCoRR members list we had a discussion around the specific technological terms that repository managers hear regularly.”

My new book is out: Knowledge Unbound

I’m happy to announce that my new book is out: Knowledge Unbound: Selected Writings on Open Access, 2002–2011, MIT Press, 2016.

I’m doubly happy to announce that it’s OA from birth, under a CC-BY license. MIT Press has released hardback and paperback editions, as well as OA editions in PDF, ePub, and Mobi. OA editions in other file formats are forthcoming from other sources.

This is a collection of 44 of my essays on OA from the first decade of this century. If you were wondering, they were all OA the first time around as well.
