OAI7: Advocacy

Really interesting session on advocacy at the OAI7 workshop in Geneva yesterday with presentations by Monica Hammes, William Nixon and Heather Joseph.  A key message coming out was that if OA repositories (e.g. BURA) are really going to take-off they have to be embedded in the workflows of the institution and researchers – as Cameron Neylon said this morning, we need to be moving from providing scaffolding to becoming part of the infrastructure.  I wonder if BRUCE can be part of this by making it a little bit easier to embed repositories into the institutional RIM infrastructure?
