PKP logoEIFL-FOSS and EIFL-OA co-organised a webinar coinciding with Open Access Week 2012. The topic focussed upon providing access across open access journals and open access repositories, with a particular focus on Open Harvester Systems (OHS) software.

The guest speaker was Alec Smecher, Technical Architect for the Public Knowledge Project, Simon Fraser University Library, and lead developer of Open Journal Systems (OJS), Open Conference Systems (OCS), Open Harvester Systems (OHS), and the PKP Web Application Library (WAL).

Oleksandr Novytskyi also presented a case study from Ukraine - using OHS for a centralized search in all Ukrainian open access repositories supported by the Institute of Software Systems, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and Zhytomyr Ivan Franko State University.
