Review of DRI Community Forum

The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) Members and Community Forum took place on Monday 24 of July at the Royal Irish Academy, Dublin. We were pleased to welcome current and upcoming members and stakeholders of DRI to a lively event full of discussion and ideas. 

A number of subjects were discussed, including DRI's role as a training and collaborative network; advocacy; user needs for collection reports; upcoming copyright law and improved collection structures. We are grateful to all our participants for their contributions and feedback.
