The VicNode Project is pleased to introduce the interim Collections Manager Owen O’Neill. Owen will be shaping the role for the next six weeks to help us kick off our Merit Allocation Scheme. He will be working with researchers, eResearch Centers, facilities and research communities across Victoria to promote and establish collections and services on the storage infrastructure VicNode is building.

From now on in we’ll be posting an update every week or two on the VicNode project to this blog. This is our first one covering stuff happening in August 😉
First up, we have built a central place on the website to store all the VicNode project operational documentation, so far this includes the publication of the:
- VicNode Merit Application Form
- VicNode Merit Allocation Committee Merit Evaluation Criteria
- VicNode Merit Allocation Process
- VicNode Merit Allocation Committee Terms of Reference
- VicNode Merit Allocation Committee Membership Change Process
We’ve shortlisted a bunch of people for the VicNode Collections Manager role, and we’ll be interviewing them next week. Thanks to everyone who applied for this role.
