Launch of UJDigiSpace
It was a privilege to attend the launch of the institutional repository of the University of Johannesburg on 24 March. UP has the highest praise for our colleagues at UJ and what they have achieved! Also with very few staff and resources. You do us proud by helping to make SA research even more visible and accessible worldwide! Their repository is available at http://ujdigispace.uj.ac.za
, and all theses and dissertations have been migrated to their new DSpace. They will also use this repository for a variety of material.
The IR was declared open by Prof D van der Merwe
(Pro Vice-Chancellor), and he also unveiled a document/ certificate to declare it as open. Ms Sander gave an overview of the IR, after which they also launched a book by Prof J Lurie: "Symmetrical Polyhedra"
. Mr Barrie Swanepoel gave a short demo of the repository, and the function was closed by Dr A Janse van Vuuren.
Congratulations to UJ Management, Barrie Swanepoel (IR IT Manager), Ms Sander, UJ Library Management and the rest of a very enthusiastic team! We are looking forward to work even closer together with you in future!
