Open Educational Repositories – Share, Improve, Reuse

The 2009 IntraLibrary Repository Conference will be held on 25-26 March 2009 in Edinburgh.

Abstracts are being accepted until this Friday, 6th February. The theme this year is on Open Educational Repositories, and papers are being sought in any of the following areas:

What does it mean to be “Open”? – How do you make the resources in your repository easily discoverable? This may be related to interfaces, or search tools, or awareness raising, links to other applications, or anything else that increases the exposure and use of resources in repositories.

Share, improve, reuse – Why do people use resources? What types of resource do they use? How easy do they find it to discover/adapt/reuse resources?

Evidence for sharing resources – Intrallect has recently completed a major project on behalf of JISC “Good intentions: improving the evidence base in support of sharing learning materials” which will be presented during the conference. Other presentations on the evidence for sharing are welcomed.

The registration deadline is 27th February. For more information contact events@intrallect.com
