I think your blog entry is very comprehensive and useful Pavlinka! How about starting a national open access portal to which everybody can contribute, in stead of each having to collect all the info on his/her own, and create separate web pages. A wiki/blog might be a useful tool to do this.

Allison - Gr8 idea the MoU signing ! And nice poster !!

Sorry, let me explain
ICS is our campus IT division. The MoU is the Memorandum of Understanding (Service Level Agreement) that we've brokered with them for ensuring technical support of the Repository (storage capacity, backup, disaster recovery). By making it a ceremonial affair, we're underlining the importance of it!

We're still finalising the script for the play but it's been really fun so far!
Glad to hear that some Stellenbosch University folk are attending - thanks for the support!
