***Apologies for cross posting***
DRIVER is pleased to announce the release of the DRIVER Mentor Service.
The distribution of repositories across Europe varies greatly. While
some countries have well-developed and supported repository communities,
others have little or no formal means of communication or support for
Developing an open access repository can raise many questions. The
staff of existing repositories have found that it is very useful to be
able to talk through issues with their peers and exchange ideas,
experiences, and solutions. The DRIVER Mentor Service introduces
developers and managers of repositories to each other with the aim of
sharing experience and best practice within the repository community.
We hope that everybody will be able to benefit from the service -- both
mentors and mentees! -- with the aim of creating a helpful and
collaborative community of professionals across Europe.
If you would like to be put in touch with a mentor, or would like to
register to be able to share your experiences with others, then visit
the Mentor Service webpage and tutorial to learn more about this
facility at http://www.driver-support.eu/mentor.html.
