COAR recently hosted a webinar for platform providers about one of the next generation repository technologies, ResourceSync.

The aim was to provide more information about the use cases and rationale for repository platforms to implement ResourceSync into their software.

The webinar included presentations by Martin Klein from Los Alamos National Laboratory (one of the developers of Resourcer Sync) and Petr Knoth (from the CORE aggregator that is using and will benefit from its adoption)

The presentations were recorded and are available here:

So far, we know that ResourceSync is already on the roadmap of many of the open source platform providers, but it is important that the benefits of adoption are widely understood.
