Recent dissemination activities for SAFIR

The York Digital Library project, of which SAFIR is the first phase, has made good use of a couple of recent dissemination opportunities.  First off, Wayne Britcliffe, Anthony Leonard and I presented a paper at the BUFVC’s Learning on Screen conference in March which gave an overview of the range of activities going on at York to support the use of multimedia in research and teaching.  The paper and presentation are both available:

Also, the Digital Library was the subject of a poster at the recent Open Repositories 2008 conference:

Recruiting Systems Developer/Administrator positions at York

We currently have two positions available to work on our Fedora implementation here at York.  Further information is available in the ‘Management & Professional’ section of the vacancy pages:

One job is permanent – a rare thing in the repositories space and needs a mix of technical and user support skills.  The other is a two-year development post focussed on building services on top of our Fedora installation to support a range of repository functions and content types.

Please email Elizabeth Harbord (Project Director) at if you would like an informal chat about the post.
