Do you use WRaP?

Dear colleague

A past colleague, from ILS, Helen Michael, is requesting help with her MA dissertation as described below.

I am hoping that this study will provide valuable feedback from WRaP users which we can use to further develop and improve the system in the lead up to the introduction of the new HEFCE Open Access requirements in April next year and going forward to the next REF exercise.

Your help will be greatly appreciated,

Many thanks

Roger Fairman
Repository Manager
Information and Learning Services

My name is Helen Michael and I am a postgraduate student at the University of Brighton studying for an MA in Information Studies. I am conducting a research project on the institutional repository here at the University of Worcester – Worcester Research and Publications (WRaP) and I am looking for volunteers to participate in interviews for my research.

I would like to talk to academic staff and research students from across the University about their perceptions and experiences of WRaP. You don’t need to be an active user of WRaP – I am interested in talking with a range of users and potential users of the repository and I would be very grateful to anyone that would be willing to take part in a one-to-one interview for approximately 30-40 minutes, to be conducted either by Skype, telephone, or in person to suit you.

If you think you may be able to take part please read the attached Participant Information Sheet which provides more details about this research project and please get in touch with me by email.

Thank you for your time,

Helen Michael
