Open Repositories 2020 REPORT du 31 mai au 3 juin 2021
The Open Repositories Steering Committee in consultation with the OR2020 and OR2021 hosts have made a decision to postpone OR2020 until May 31 – June 3rd 2021.
This was not a decision made lightly – we looked carefully at our options (keeping the current dates, cancelling, or postponing) and decided postponing a full year was the best option for both logistical and financial reasons. We chose Stellenbosch as a host location because we very much wanted to bring Open Repositories to the African continent and to create a space to listen and discuss the current state of repositories across Africa and the world. Postponing the conference a year allows us to meet that goal and, hopefully, a resolution of the current COVID19 pandemic.
