I’m Andrew Gray the newly appointed Repository Manager at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I am very happy to join not only the Library but the whole of LSHTM and I’m sure it will be a fruitful experience. My goal is to set up an institutional repository for the research output of the school. Repositories are online databases that collect, share and preserve the intellectual output of an organisation or institution. Repositories are closely aligned with the Open Access movement which aims to provide free, permanent web access to peer reviewed research articles to anyone who has an internet connection. This is a 2 year project and by the end I hope that our repository will be a place and a service that not only shares and preserves research but promotes the research, researchers and LSHTM to a wider audience.
I am located in the library, Monday to Wednesday, so if you have any questions or just want a chat please come and say hello. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my number is 020 7598 8193.
