From the year 2000, digital repositories have developed as the main support for the Open Access Movement. Over the years digital repositories (e-repositories) have matured into a tool not only for open access to research literature, but also the tool to manage and make accessible an institution’s multimedia digital assets whilst at the same time providing the organization with a centralized research information reporting mechanism. Expansion as multimedia repositories and descriptions of their uses in digital asset management will bring participants to the discussion on how these transformations in the digital environment has changed the role of libraries and librarians/library agents. Practical experience of contributing to a repository will be included.
A Certificate of Participation will be issued to all successful students.
