NECTAR Initiatives and Development 2008-2016

Research output: Contribution to ConferencePosterpeer-review


NECTAR, the University of Northampton's research repository, was launched in June 2008. In the nine years since launch, development of NECTAR has focused on two broad goals: to increase academic engagement with the service within the university, and to understand and develop its reach and impact globally.

This poster maps a timeline of academic deposits and user analytics from NECTAR against various internal initiatives (including implementation of plug-ins, dissemination of statistical reports, and user engagement projects), and wider HE events such as the Research Excellence Framework, in an attempt to identify trends and results that might inform future development of the service – and hopefully highlight where (and why) we got it right.
