Graham and Michael attended the 2nd Repository Fringe in Edinburgh, July 30th and 31st. It was a great opportunity to meet and discuss all things repository with fellow developers, administrators and users of repositories, with delegates coming from all over the UK and some from further afield. An excellent wrapup of the event can be browsed by going to the JISC Datashare blog. The Closing Plenary by Clifford Lynch, Director of the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) is especially noteworthy, though there are many very interesting aspects of the conference documented on the site. The Twitter thread can be searched using the #rf09 hash tag.
