A free day-long EPrints training course is being hosted by JISC’s Repository Support Project in Liverpool on April 22nd, and we’ve decided that as the last one was targeted at Library Staff, we’d tailor this one for the systems staff and developers.
In the morning we will introduce some of the API, and show how to use the configuration files to modify the abstract page, set default values on newly created EPrints, change render methods on metadata fields, etc. The afternoon will cover API Scripting and Plugins. We’ll take a more in-depth look at the API. Exercises will cover using scripts to manage the records in your repository and the changing of the behaviour of EPrints through plugin modification and creation.Details on how to sign up are available on the RSP events page:http://www.rsp.ac.uk/events/We look forward to seeing you there.
