Tuesday afternoon opened with a plenary at which Peter Morgan gave a very clear summary of open access and institutional repositories. Peter runs Cambridge's DSpace repository when he's not being a medical librarian.
He made some interesting points about the differences between computing and library approaches to repositories, noting that librarians who run repositories think of different ways to use them, particularly to manage other digital resources in institutions. He also pointed out some of the growing tensions between archivangelists and librarians, and drew our attention to a new SHERPA resource, JULIET, which sets out for authors the open access requirements of each of the British research councils.
Then we heard from Danielle Worster on the Seniors Health Research Transfer Network (SHRTN) project in Ontario.
