Research Skills Programme: DSpace@Cambridge

A message from Dr Emma Coonan, Research Skills & Development Librarian:

We have now scheduled a session on DSpace@Cambridge, the University’s repository for scholarly digital material. This session is aimed primarily at postgraduate students interested in publishing their research with DSpace@Cambridge. As ever, members of staff are most welcome to attend too!

Please see http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/courses/dspace.html for more information and to book a place. You can download a poster for the session from http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/courses/posters.html.

This session is on Thursday 20 May 2010, 11:00, in the Morison Room, University Library.

The University wants DSpace@Cambridge to be more widely used. It has, after all, existed since 2003 but not many people seem to know about it. For instance, since Michaelmas Term 2009, postgraduates past and present have been encouraged to deposit their thesis in the DSpace@Cambridge repository. This request has so far succeeded in over 100 theses being deposited and now online.

Dr Coonan also points out that the web address for the Research Skills pages has changed recently to http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/courses. However, there do not seem to be any other courses now until next academic year.
