Symplectic Repository Tools: Repository Integration

Graham Triggs1, Sarah Molloy2

1Symplectic, United Kingdom; 2Queen Mary University London, United Kingdom

To minimise the administrative burden placed on academic staff during their research - this is the driving force of Symplectic that has led to Elements (research information management system) being integrated with all the major open source repositories: DSpace, EPrints and Fedora.

Creating a good user experience requires good customer feedback. In the UK, a self-organising group of repository administrators (SyRTUG) has regular in-person meetings to identify common issues, exchange solutions and best practices and stay in touch with product developments.

Symplectic, along with the organisers of the UK user group, would like to extend the opportunity to users of the Elements repository integration around the world to meet up, share experiences, and help define the future requirements of repository integration.
