Would you like to know more about the open access repositories that hold your research publications? Attend the Open Repositories (OR) 2017 Conference that runs from Monday 26 June to Friday 30 June 2017 at the Hilton, Brisbane.

Griffith University, along with the University of Queensland (UQ), Queensland University of Technology (QUT), is hosting this year’s OR Conference.

The Conference brings together users and developers of open digital repository platforms from higher education, government, galleries, libraries, archives and museums.

It provides an interactive forum to explore the global challenges and opportunities facing libraries and the broader scholarly information landscape.
