In 2020, TERNET with support from COSTECH helped about 40 institutions in deployment of institution repositories, however, managing these repositories has still been challenging. Therefore, TERNET is planning a 5 days training workshop on the institutional repository.


The workshop will be hands-on training focused on the long-term preservation of scholarly and published digital content. Having a repository and being easily discovered is essential, but having good statistics about the use of your repository is more important for further planning. We need to run our repositories on HTTP, the standard technology for keeping an internet connection secure and safeguarding any sensitive data that is being sent between two systems.


The IT officers and librarians will go through systematic customization and management of the Institutional Repository and also be able to manage statistics for reporting and planning purposes.
