    Fourth Open Archives Forum: In Practice, Good Practice
    September 4-5, 2003: UKOLN, University of Bath, UK


    The Fourth Open Archives Forum will take place at UKOLN, University of
    Bath, UK, on the 4th and 5th of September. The title of the workshop is:
    'In Practice, Good Practice'. This workshop is our first to be held in the UK.

    The event will focus on good practice in the implementation of open
    archives. A particular theme of the workshop will be the use of the Open
    Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting [OAI-PMH] in the area
    of Cultural Heritage. The workshop will also be looking at the use of the
    OAI protocol as a way of publishing information about university theses,
    and how that might contribute to developing useful content for
    institutional (as opposed to subject-based) eprint archives.

    The workshop will build on issues discussed during the whole project, and
    facilitate exchange of information about best practice. The workshop will
    consider European experience of open archives regarding technical issues,
    organisational issues and Intellectual Property Rights. A report on
    organisational issues written by an OAForum working group will be
    presented at the workshop. Breakout sessions will offer the opportunity to
    discuss issues of practice with others working at the sharp end of

    There also will be an introduction to one of the project's key
    deliverables: an online tutorial which will give guidance to those wishing
    to implement a project using the OAI-PMH. This tutorial will be based on
    the experience of the successful pre-workshop tutorials held in Lisbon
    (2002) and Berlin (2003).

    There will be a poster session to allow you to disseminate information
    about your project, and to allow time and space (and coffee) for
    all-important networking.

    Our keynote speaker will be Mogens Sandfaer. We hope to have at least one
    representative of the Open Archives Initiative present at the workshop, as
    we have had at earlier workshops, and there will be other important
    figures in the open archives world present. A panel session closing the
    second day of the workshop will offer the opportunity to exchange views
    about the future direction of open archives, and about our experience of
    the open archives approach so far.

    The Open Archives Forum is a EU funded project, whose purpose is to
    explore the possibilities of the open archives idea in the European
    context, and to facilitate access to relevant information. Further
    information and a draft programme will appear in the near future on the
    Open Archives Forum website: <http://www.oaforum.org/>http://www.oaforum.org/
