DSpace user group

If you have been following the Moodle Journal blog, then you will be aware that we are running the DSpace content repository here at bromley and the other day I made it along to the first official meeting of the UK & Ireland DSpace user group that was hosted by BioMed Central in London. The topics covered at the meeting included: IRRA talk and discussion, DSpace 2 - vision and issues, JISC funding and potential collaboration. We made a decision to hold future meetings at various locations around the UK and Ireland, though there was no firm time scale as to how often yet. If you are interested in joining the user group then have a look at DSUG. As you may know the Open University have adopted Moodle and I was encouraged by a comment by Professor Andy lane of the OU Open Content initiative who said ‘the effective linking of repositories will be absolutely vital during the next five to ten years’.
