RepositoryMan: Soton Labs: Embedded Repository Experimentation | Open Access News from the RSP team |

An interesting blog post from Les Carr on the University of Southampton's new programme of repository activity called "Soton Labs".


"Inspired by the idea of Google Labs, it is an institutional space for experimentation and innovation around research information systems, and EPrints will form its backbone. Driven by the needs of the research staff, it will be informed by a whole range experience and ideas (many gathered from research council and JISC projects) that can be offered to staff on the famous "permanent beta" experimental basis until they are ripe for integration into the main (business critical) repository."
