COAR organises series of interactive events mainly for members-only including COAR partners but also some available to the public offering information about the latest trends and topics in open access and repositories. It will involve a mix of virtual presentations about new activities, technologies and projects, as well as facilitated discussions about important issues. The aim is to have sessions every few months, and ensure that we have programming of relevance for different regions and time zones. We welcome your suggestions for the topics.
User Engagement: How can repositories better engage their main user communities, researchers, students and administrators? This interactive webinar will include short presentation from COAR members, and provide an opportunity for participants to share ideas and best practices.
This members-only webinar will take place on 31 October, Wednesday at 15:00-16:00 GMT.
Please send your ideas to contribute to the webinar by October 19, 2018.
