UKOLN, University of Bath, BA2 7AY

Wednesday 11 March 2009

Programme | Booking Form


Institutional repositories are created and developed to support the requirements of a diverse user group. A successful repository translates these requirements into features and functionality, making a flexible and user-friendly interface for IR users. This event will explore the different aspects of dealing with user requirements and is aimed at non-technical staff who need to communicate with both users and technical colleagues or external partners to make their repository reflect user requirements.

  • A workshop on how to capture user requirements and then communicate those requirement to technical staff
  • Case studies showing how others have worked with and developed their user requirements
  • A technical perspective on user requirements
  • A workshop looking at requirements from the user perspective – what do you want when you are the user?

There will also be time in the day to network with other IR staff and with the speakers.
