We have been progressing well with the non-technical side of the project.  All documentation around DORA has been reviewed, updated and released.  DORA’s presence on the DMU website has been changed so that it is more embedded within the research area of the site.  This will be moved with the rest of the content directly to the new website later in the year.  Advocacy materials are being developed and a training and advocacy programme is being set up  for November finishing at the E-resources roadshow in the Library on the 16th. 

On the technical side work on the DSpace instance of the Kultur plugin in nearly complete.  This has been a lot of work but was considered a priority due to the University’s expertise in creative research.  This will be incorporated into DORA by the end of the project.  We are also working on a link to the new website to directly provide lists of outputs for the new researcher profiles.  This work is a key part of the last work package and important for integrating DORA with DMU systems. 

Some work is still to be completed but work on the project is going well.  We look forward to completing all the diverse parts of the project to enable many improvements to DORA .
