Training

Running a successful Institutional Repository requires skilled personnel who can make effective management and technical decisions that benefit the institution’s staff and promote the institution’s research.   As well as a variety of online resources to facilitate self-directed training, EPrints Services offers a number of face-to-face trainer led offerings.

2017 training dates will be announced in the new year

Please contact EPrints Services if you are interested in attending our trainer-led course.  Course dates are subject to change, and minimum numbers.

Training Options

EPrints for Administrators, 1 Day Trainer-Led Course
The purpose of the day is to provide a holistic view of the EPrints system focusing on the web interface, so administrators are aware of their role and responsibilities within the system as well as other roles and their impact on one another. Through a combination of walkthroughs and hands-on exercises you will experience the core features available to a visitor, depositor, editor, and of course the administrator.
