Or should that be ‘It’s All About The Metadata Baby’..
I’m working on my Internet Librarian International masterclass material and realised I the reason I’m working on this my:self-archive blog is partly to record my experiences in setting up our institutional repository to share with colleagues who are about to do the same and GUESS WHAT?! I’m not using any of the headings or keywords that *I* used to search for precisely this topic (and found very little I might add)! It’s a ‘hand slapped on forehead’ moment.
Part of the WordPress stats allow you to see the searches that find my blog (a few coming in from ‘prism and open access’ at the mo). I can only presume all those seaches on blogs and repositories (surely there must be thousands!) are coming up with nothing or going elsewhere, because no one has been directed my way! It’s quite hard to find this stuff – which is partly why I have my blogroll displayed there on the right.
Will let you know if anyone finds me now..
