"A research institution’s view of their role in OA mandates and policies: using the institutional repository" William J Nixon is the Digital Library Development Manager at the University of Glasgow. William has been actively involved in Open Access and repositories since 2001 when he worked with the beta version of the EPrints software at Glasgow. He was the Service Development Manager of the JISC funded DAEDALUS project which developed repositories at Glasgow. These led to the University’s repository service, Enlighten in 1996 and the University’s statement to "strongly encourage" deposit. In 2008 as part of the University’s repository team, with Morag Greig and Susan Ashworth, William was involved in drafting the University’s Publications Policy. He is also currently the Project Manager of the JISC Funded Enrich project which is looking at the integration opportunities between Enlighten, the University of Glasgow’s institutional repository service and the institution’s Research System. William has been a member of the OAI and Open Repositories Organising Committees and in 2006 was the local organiser for the Open Scholarship conference at the University of Glasgow. William has an MA from the University of Glasgow and an MSc (Library and Information Science) from the University of Strathclyde.
