The Virginia Henderson International Nursing Library (VHL) is the latest Open Repository customer to have launched their repository at the Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) Biennial Convention in Texas last Saturday, 29th October.
STTI offers nurses, in all roles around the globe, online access to reliable nursing information that can be easily utilized and shared. Recent advances in Internet technologies and wider policies regarding mandatory open access to published articles influenced STTI’s decision to expand their online Registry of Nursing Research abstract database into a new, full-text service.
Margie Wilson, Library Manager at STTI stated “When looking to enhance our system, we found that the Open Repository system offered by BioMed Central provided the services that would support the conversion and delivery of our existing data into the format needed to support the enhancements.”
Open Repository’s stand at the convention has received some great feedback on the repository – you can view some photos of the event here.
