Simon Kerridge from Kent, Kate Walker from Southampton, and myself attended the event yesterday in London.
Each project team gave a short overview of their plans. Here is ours:
It was great to catch up with existing and new contacts within the projects and with other interested parties.
The emphasis of the day was definetly working together. Loads of ideas to follow up.
We continued discussions with Hull regarding how we will split systems development work to avoid duplication, and with UCL on how we might best address advocacy workshops which both projects suggested in their proposals.
All very keen to ensure information shared as widely as possible. We will be using our networks to share information. Simon is Chair of ARMA and I am the Open Access Special Interest Group Champion. We also have links with many networks such as SCONUL, RLUK, UKCoRR and will do our best to continue to share information about Open Access activity.
Thanks to all the tweeters who eloquently covered the event such that I did not feel the need to do a lot of tweeting myself (tag used #oagp if anyone wants to search)
