An Introduction to the Portage CoreTrustSeal Repository Certification Support Cohort and Funding
Portage will soon be launching a call for applications to participate in a cohort of Canadian repositories working toward CoreTrustSeal certification, together with funding to support this effort on the part of each participating repository. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of the benefits of working toward repository certification alongside a cohort and discuss some of the factors that contribute to success.
We will also provide a brief introduction to CoreTrustSeal as a certification for sustainable and trustworthy repositories and discuss the certification process from the perspective of Ocean Networks Canada, a Canadian repository.
Finally, we will introduce a call for applications for participation in Portage’s cohort of repositories. This webinar will be especially relevant to repositories who may consider applying to join the Portage cohort.
