[EP-tech] New Webinar@AIMS 28th of July: "DSpace: Maximizing the impact of institutional knowledge"

******** Apologies for cross-posting ********

The Agricultural Information Management Standards (AIMS) Community [1], is pleased to announce a new webinar entitled " Maximizing the impact of institutional knowledge using DSpace" [2]. The session will take place on the 28th of July 2015 - 11:00 Rome Time [3] and will be presented by Alan Orth, Linux system administrator at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in Nairobi, Kenya [4].


This webinar will discuss how DSpace [5] can be used as the single, canonical source for institutional outputs and how to integrate it with other services.
DSpace is a free, open-source software application for creating institutional repositories. Out of the box DSpace is a rather simple, uninspired repository, but with a bit of work it can be turned into a workhorse for disseminating institutional knowledge. By committing to using DSpace as the canonical location for institutional outputs, you can focus on standardizing metadata taxonomies and carefully curating content, then leverage application program interfaces (APIs) to integrate it with other services. This strategy is more efficient, reduces duplication of outputs, and increases the potential impact of institutional knowledge through syndication, harvesting, etc.


The session is open to anyone but places are limited. If you are interested to attend the webinar, send an e-mail to AIMS at fao.org, containing the following information: your name, affiliation, role and country.
