posted in: Newsletter 2 | 0

The Capacity Building on Repository Management which held on the 17th-18th of May 2017 was facilitated by Mr. Tedd Avinidigh of Messrs Management Edge Ltd and in attendance were Librarians drawn from eight Nigerian Universities and some NgREN staff.

 

MAJOR ACTIVITIES AT THE TRAINING

The event commenced with opening remarks from Mr. Anthony Adejumo. He welcomed the participants and highlighted the various concerns that necessitated the scheduling of the training, which was primarily the need for universities to access digitized educational contents from member institutions. He further stressed that digital repositories allow for capture and easy access to materials and long term preservation of materials.

The facilitator, Mr. Tedd Avinidigh gave a general overview of Repository and access control before engaging the participants in a hands-on management process. The class was interactive and easy to understand. The topics discussed during the training include:

 

  • Access control / User authentication
  • User management
  • Community and content management (creating community, content and metadata)
  • Maintenance tag
  • Content harvesting
  • Review and approval workflow
  • Sharing of some useful links on backup
