Building on the successful 03/05 programme, JISC's Repositories and Preservation programme began on June 1st 2006 and runs until March 31st 2009. As part of the Digital Repositories Programme, JISC established the Repositories Research Team. In the final stages of the programme the RRT are producing a sort of annotated index for the outputs of the programme to be used in the next stage of the process, which will be the actual synthesis and evaluation of the outcomes. The blog in progress is available at http://rrtsynthesis.wordpress.com/. Our poster will present a snapshot of twelve project outputs that we think the repository community may not know about but could be of immediate benefit to them. The indentified outputs cover areas such as: plug-ins and add-ons for repositories, repository workflow design, standards usage and related guidelines, and stand alone tools. Our criteria in the selection of the outputs will be: outputs that are ready to use, that aren't already very well-known, and that aren't otherwise disseminated at OR2009. We'll include outputs of obvious benefit that address basic questions faced by repository managers : how do I?, what do I need to know about?
