The RSP is facilitating a half day event aimed specifically
at repository managers who work with hosted or commercial software solutions.
The programme will contain a case study from the University of Surrey exploring
some of the unique issues that face repository managers in this situation, along
with plenty of opportunity for networking and discussion as part of both the
wider group and in software based clusters.

As with all RSP events the day will be offered at no-cost
to attendees. There are no limits on the number of delegates who are welcome to
attend from any one institution although we recommend that to take the best
advantage of the event participants should be actively using, or about to take
on, one of the software solutions listed above.
