After careful consideration and because of the ongoing and unpredictable developments around coronavirus, this event will no longer go ahead as planned.
It was a difficult decision but the health and wellbeing of our members and staff is our top priority. We also want to ensure we play our part in containing and delaying the spread of the virus. We are aware that many of you will have booked travel for the event and we are sincerely sorry for any monetary losses you may incur.
We are currently looking at alternatives for this event, and we will update further when available.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience that cancelling this event may cause. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
Practice-based and non-text outputs have long been a subject of discussion within the research community. For repository staff, whether librarians, administrators, data managers or open access officers, they can represent a real challenge for deposit into an open access repository.
How can you effectively deposit an exhibition? An artist’s book? A performance? What are the rules for effective online capture of a non-text output? Can you ever do it ‘right’?
Answering these questions is probably impossible, but at this event we will explore how many HEIs have addressed these challenges, and how repository staff are continuing to manage and address the ongoing challenges in this area.
The focus of the event is on present-day practical challenges associated with depositing practice-based research outputs.
We hope to provide a forum for supporting those who are new in this field, struggling with effective deposit of non-text outputs, or exploring the different software and approaches to this problem. By the end of the day we hope to have generated ten ‘top tips’ for practical deposit of practice-based research outputs. The day will also provide opportunities for discussion and networking amongst attendees.
