27th October 2010

1554 Gallery, Sheffield Cathedral, Church Street, Sheffield, S1 1HA

This one day conference includes a rich variety of speakers, each of whom will present an insight into 'doing it differently'. It provides a unique opportunity to hear about alterntative approaches to repository-like functions, open access and the general field of improving research communications. There is no one uniform approach and each of the speakers will cover very different projects, ideas and services; including Mendeley, Xpert, Kultur and SNEEP as well as reflections on using blogs for scholarly communications and iTunesU for learning resources.
