Work is progressing well on the production of learning materials. These are being authored in LSE’s Moodle learning environment but they are HTML pages and so can easily be re-purposed. All material will be made publicly available under a Creative Commons licence and deposited in JORUM.
Copy-and-paste is producing two more resources:
- a FAQ sheet, in collaboration with PrePARE at Cambridge and SHARD at ULCC/IHR
- a set of presentations to library staff in the context of “train the trainers” that can also be used with researchers. These are on Prezi and can be viewed/downloaded from http://prezi.com/explore/search/page/1/?search=malcolm%20raggett
A series of 30-minute training courses is under way to inform library staff about research data preservation.
PrePARE, SHARD and DICE have collaborated to produce an introductory leaflet targetted at researchers. This is currently at the printers and should be available in plenty of time for the next academic year, when it can be included in the Welcome Pack of all new research students as well as being given to existing researchers.
