14 Why Fileopen and not Adobe Digital Editions? You only need to download it once for all users. There are no forced upgrades. It works. “Here at UEA we've been involved in the testing of FileOpen from the start and I would say it is a great improvement on Digital Editions; easier to network and no problems with upgrades. There was one early bug involving (I believe) double layers of security, but this was quickly sorted out and BL were very helpful all along.” Michael Robbins, Senior Assistant - ILL, University of East Anglia,

The UK Research Reserve (UKRR) Pavan Ramrakha Business Development Manager – Higher Education
37 UKRR - Purpose Journal collections growing despite electronic access. Storing low use journals – cost / resources. HE have paid into the future with UKRR… Key aims Protecting research information infrastructure for UK HE 100 km shelf space to be released and space to be repurposed
38 Why set up UKRR? Timing was right Responds to some key drivers: space pressures funding for additional space – low priority move to centralise libraries online archives – sustainable access inclusive of many key stakeholders
39 Drivers within HE sector include: co-ordinate de-selection of low-use print journals provides trusted storage offer a joined-up approach deliver services which evolve with the user base releases space to support the research & learning communities
40 UKRR delivers Quick and easy access to research material Coordinated retention of print journals Collaborative storage of print journals Release of space for other initiatives Economic advantages – funding for de-duplication
41 UKRR – How achieve key aims? Important to access content paid for by HE for the future whilst providing efficient access now. UKRR provides this by protecting research information: 3 copies of holdings offered by members are held within the UKRR community 1 copy held at the BL – access copy 2 copies within UKRR members’ collections
42 UKRR – How achieve key aims? 100 km shelf space to be released: Collaborative collection management Allows members to dispose of material whilst retaining access Responds to space pressures Free up space for quiet study or group work
