******** Apologies for cross-posting ********

The Agricultural Information Management Standards (AIMS) Community [1], is
pleased to announce a new webinar entitled " Maximizing the impact of
institutional knowledge using DSpace" [2]. The session will take place on
the 28th of July 2015 – 11:00 Rome Time [3] and will be presented by Alan
Orth, Linux system administrator at the International Livestock Research
Institute (ILRI) in Nairobi, Kenya [4].


This webinar will discuss how DSpace [5] can be used as the single,
canonical source for institutional outputs and how to integrate it with
other services.

DSpace is a free, open-source software application for creating
institutional repositories. Out of the box DSpace is a rather simple,
uninspired repository, but with a bit of work it can be turned into a
workhorse for disseminating institutional knowledge. By committing to using
DSpace as the canonical location for institutional outputs, you can focus
on standardizing metadata taxonomies and carefully curating content, then
leverage application program interfaces (APIs) to integrate it with other
services. This strategy is more efficient, reduces duplication of outputs,
and increases the potential impact of institutional knowledge through
syndication, harvesting, etc.


The session is open to anyone but places are limited. If you are interested
to attend the webinar, send an e-mail to AIMS at fao.org, containing the
following information: your name, affiliation, role and country.

Information Management Specialist
