'Claiming the Territory' - La Trobe University's Metadata Store with Roderick Sadler - Wed 8th May 2013

Don't miss this thoughtful presentation about the impact La Trobe University’s Metadata Store with Roderick Sadler on Wednesday 8th May 10:00am NSW, Vic, Tas, Qld, (9:30am SA and NT) (8:00am WA) via GoTo Meeting - log-in details below...(places limited to 26).

Following Carolyn Hulsbergen’s presentation into strategies for managing change, La Trobe University’s Institutional Repository Team Leader, Roderick Sadler has some profound insights into the impact of the university’s Metadata Stores Project and the cultural changes unleashed as the University Library becomes a publisher for the first time. He will discuss how La Trobe is helping researchers think about their data as something that can be published and how exposing research data is part of claiming the territory and gaining advantage for researchers as well as for the University.

Roderick will be explaining how La Trobe is future-proofing the architecture of its Metadata Store by using unique and durable identifiers as well as how they are using ReDBox to massage and then push data to their Vital Repository.

La Trobe’s Digital Infrastructure Manager, Simon Huggard and Research Data Co-ordinator, Charlie Ambrose will also be on hand to answer questions and expand on the significance of their project.
