Tracking Research Outputs and Populating Repositories

Eko-Konnect in collaboration with the Nigerian Universities Library Consortium (NULIB) invites you to a two day interactive and practical workshop themed: “Tracking Research Outputs and Populating Your Repository”.   The workshop is aimed at addressing some of the issues raised at the meeting of Libraries in support of effective research in WACREN held in Abuja last year.   

Building on regional efforts to promote researcher visibility and other collaborations to enable improved access to local content, the event will be a participatory design workshop with outcomes that lead to follow-on activity in participant campus networks.

Objective
Co-design a collaborative project for increased awareness and uptake of ORCID identifiers on Nigerian campuses, and employ them to efficiently track research outputs and other institutional data outputs through the integration of Institutional Repositories with the ORCID API.

Target Audience
Senior Librarians and Library systems support staff who currently manage or plan to deploy Institutional Repositories and want to achieve more impact from their deployment.

Date: 12th and 13th December, (Tuesday and Wednesday) 2017 
Time: 8am – 5pm 
Venue: Eko-Konnect Secretariat, 11b Taiye Olowu Street, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos
