Librarian for Digital Media and Publishing, Digital Scholarship and Communications
|I am less than one year into overseeing our institutional repository and still learning the nuances of DSpace, but have experience with other open access library publishing platforms. I am interested in how DSpace integrates with other platforms and keeping DSpace documentation up to date.|
|Wei Xuan||University of Manitoba||Head, Library Systems||I am the Head of Libraries Systems at University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada. In my role, I work with several support staff to take care of all systems used at the Libraries, which include Fedora, Islandora, DSpace, Dataverse, Alma, Primo, etc. The University of Manitoba Libraries has been a supporter of Fedora for many years. I would like to take this opportunity to get more engaged with the community. I have been deeply involved in numerous projects focused on systems interoperability, data protection and accessibility. I served in the Fedora Leadership Group 2019-2020. I consistently obtain knowledge from the DSpace community and joining the leadership group will be a great way to give back.|
