Resource Management

The repositories strand of CETIS's work looks at the use of systems to manage learning resources, especially the dissemination of those resources (whether open or otherwise). We take a wide view of what a repository is, defining one loosely as a place where resources can be kept. Thus Web2.0 services such as YouTube and Flickr are as much in scope as traditional repository software such as DSpace and ePrints.

This work relates to the Learning Resources and Activities area of the JISC eLearning Programme, and to the JISC Information Environment programme.
