Sterling Memorial Library Lecture Hall
Patricia Hswe, Digital Content Strategist and Head, ScholarSphere User Services at Penn State University and Daniel Coughlin, Ph.D. Candidate at Penn State UniversityDescription: Yale University Library and Yale ITS are pleased to sponsor a conference and public lecture on ScholarSphere, a software project developed at Penn State University, based on the same open-source Hydra/Fedora framework in use at YUL.
Yale University Library and ITS are investigating the possible adoption of this solution to enable Yale faculty and researchers to self-archive their own digital content in a managed, secure repository for controlled or open dissemination as well as for their own use. Our speakers will talk about the ScholarSphere project both from a technical perspective and as a service model. More information on the ScholarSphere website here.
