Regularly scheduled offering at the University of Southampton

1 Day

9:45 to 16:30 (subject to change)

The purpose of the day is to provide a holistic view of the 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 demonstrations and hands-on exercises, supervised by members of the EPrints development team, attendees will become proficient in carrying out their role as the Administrator of an EPrints repository.

There are no technical pre-requisites to this course, however basic IT skills and a familiarity with web browsers are recommended.
