Repository Lingo 102

Posted by gazjjohnson on 2 June, 2009

Following on from my last post about the language used in repositoriesand open access, Keith kindly pointed me towards this rather useful entry on Peter Suber’s blog .  Whilst this goes into a lot greater depth than perhaps the casual reader might like, it is a very useful companion piece to my entry on the language.  Those of you working in OA will be thoroughly familiar with many if not all of the debates and issues it raises.

But if you’re a librarian, looking for a firmer grounding in the background to the current discussions in open access and repositories, you’d be well advised to read through it.  It’s could prove especially useful in answering all the enquiries from academics whom might remain somewhat skeptical about open access in the first place.

You might come away from it a little more confused – don’t worry!  Open access and scholarly communications is a big area to try and get your head around, and it’s pretty dynamic – changing all the time.  But the more you know, the easier it is to deal with.

Next time on Repository Lingo – what do all those pretty colours mean?
