The Repository Rodeo returns for another round of questions and answers! This popular panel, featured at both OR2016 and OR2017, offers a broad overview of the main repository platforms at Open Repositories and provides an opportunity for spirited discussion amongst panelists and attendees. Join representatives from the Dataverse, DSpace, Eprints, Fedora, Islandora, Invenio, and Samvera communities as we (briefly) explain what each of our repositories actually does. We'll also talk about the directions of our respective technical and community developments, and related to the conference theme of Sustaining Open, discuss how our various systems can co-exist, interoperate, and thrive now and into the future.
This panel will be a great opportunity for newcomers to Open Repositories to get a crash course on the major repository options and meet representatives from each of their communities. After a brief presentation from each representative, we'll open the session up for questions from the audience.
