32 “The Summer School was fantastic: speakers, organisation, venue, food, service were all excellent (much better than very good!).”

33 “This was an excellent event: probably the best I have attended. I really liked the interactive/practical aspects of it, and had the chance to talk to colleagues, too. Thank you.”

34 “Very enjoyable and useful…Great speakers covering a wide range of interesting issues. After starting to work for the University of Liverpool repository six months ago, this course has made things so much clearer for me….Very valuable indeed! Thank you very much!”


36 The RSP evolves “It’s interesting to see how the content of RSP training and events has evolved as the repository community has matured in the UK. I came along to the Winter School as a speaker but didn’t expect that I’d learn anything new. In fact, it’s been really valuable and stimulating and I’ve learned a lot” William Nixon, University of Glasgow, Speaker at the Winter School, 9 th – 11 th February 2011
