DRI Repository Training

Thursday, June 14, 2018
NUI Galway

This Introductory Training is geared towards existing and potential digital collections curators who may be interested in depositing those collections into DRI. It was developed for the Arts in Education Research Repository (AiERR) but is open to all who may be interested in joining DRI and storing digital collections there. Groups who may be interested include researchers, academics, librarians and archivists.

The training gives an overview of how DRI is structured, the basic principles of digital archiving, and a chance to see a live demo of the repository ingest process. Sign up here
