University of Derby internally launch their repository


The University of Derby, UK, recently held an event introducing its research department to UDORA, the University’s repository.

Philip Plowden, Pro Vice Chancellor for Research, was the main speaker along with the Head of Research, Professor Paul Bridges.  They spoke on the benefits of open access and institutional repositories for the institute, researchers, the library and the general public as a whole.

The day was hosted by Richard Finch, Academic Services Manager for the University Library and the repository team: Melanie Keady, E-Resources Development Manager; Tim Peacock, E-Resources & Interlending Administrator and Val Wilkins, Resource and Metadata Librarian who have all contributed to making UDORA a success.

It was a pleasure to be at the event and to speak directly with many researchers. There is a great deal of enthusiasm for the repository and, since the launch event, direct submissions to UDORA by researchers have increased significantly.

I was delighted to hear, from all speakers, such positive comments about the level of service provided by Open Repository. You can read more details via the case study.

If you have any questions about UDORA or Open Repository, please do get in touch.

Can nucleotide or base excision repair occur long after the damage or is there a window in which it does its action? If one wants to take supplements to enhance repair or any kind of repair enhancement, is there a time when it is too late?
