    It presented a series of experiences we related following and made two practical studios— one to help the assistants to manage correctly on the Red Iris list from the CSIC (Superior Council of Scientific Investigations) that they subscribed; the other studio was to delve into the recovering of information and web positioning. To carry both studios, it was necessary to rent informatic equipment.

  • Conclusions

    In conclusion, we underline the active participation of the assistants and the excellent group environment that has the Seminar, which makes easier collaboration and works in the network.

    We missed the lack of assistance of the Catalan Coordinator (Montserrat Grabolosa) due to personal issues, although she was involved in the coordination until the last moment.

    Monitoring and suggestions of new projects of common interest to the new participants of the Seminar:

    1. Distribution List and exchange of files servic
      It suggested that Javier Puertas request Red Iris to change the name of the Distribution List from CDENMPA to RECIDA, as well as the network.
    2. A pamphlet's publication
      A draft of the pamphlet was presented, with the mean of discuss its design and text. It wrote down the opinion of each participant to unite judgement and deal with all the suggestions as much as possible.
    3. Website
      It considered taking the opportunity to create a website for the RECIDA network. It considered several possibilities (a website from CENEAM, Red Iris, or a website with its domain). Several options will evaluate. Moreover, they will disseminate the most feasible one through the list.
    4. Topics of interest to be addressed in the next edition
      Digital library, web page evaluation, union catalog, integrate management, quality, human resources: skills, thesaurus.
