OpenAIR@RGU – monthly update (no.35 – November 2019)

Welcome to the thirty-fifth monthly update on OpenAIR@RGU – RGU’s open access institutional repository. Please direct any queries to the team at publications@rgu.ac.uk.

Service Update

We migrated our legacy data into Worktribe over the summer, but we are still working to fix lots of inaccuracies and errors that have appeared in our records during the migration. If you spot any problems when using Worktribe or OpenAIR, please let us know and we’ll fix them as quickly as possible.

We have started to run training sessions for researchers on how to use the Outputs module in Worktribe. This training covers searching for existing outputs as well as adding new ones. Invitations are being sent directly to researchers according to lists that have been provided by research leads in each School. If you think you should have received an invite and have not heard anything by the end of January, please get in touch with the Publications Team. Please note: you will need to have attended a “Getting Started with Worktribe” basic training session first, in order to be given access to the system. You can find out more about the “Getting Started” sessions by contacting Jane Williams.

New OpenAIR@RGU repository launched today

We are pleased and excited to announce that today sees the launch of our new OpenAIR@RGU repository of RGU research outputs, which is now part of the Worktribe research information system. All the content from the old repository platform has been migrated over, and there will be additional features such as Profiles for researchers, projects etc. which will be built up over time. The new repository will benefit greatly by being integrated with the wider Worktribe research information system at RGU, making it much easier to share our research outputs with the world.

If you have any comments or queries regarding the new repository please contact the Library Publications team at publications@rgu.ac.uk
