As you’ll have probably seen last week on the lists UKCoRR, in collaboration with the RSP and Japan’s DRF (Digital Repository Federation) have signed a memorandum of understanding.
The Memorandum includes a commitment to
- Sharing experience and expertise
- Inviting and possibly sponsoring representatives from partners to participate in RSP and DRF events
- Joint efforts to seek funding and/or support
Obviously from UKCoRR’s perspective (and being unfunded as we are) we’re mostly about the first option in the agreement; but all the same it’s the first time we’ve signed up to an international agreement and is something that all members can be proud of – the furtherance of recognition of the importance of the repository worker and manager around the world.
You can read more about this, and view the memorandum on the RSP’s pages.
