Mapping this to a traditional training course

Our traditional training also has lots in about customisation which maps directly onto the training done here. These training material can be downloaded [1]

  • Branding with Confidence - CSS (16:00 day 2)
  • Modifying Phrases - Drop the files in (covered throughout)
  • Configuring the Deposit Workflow - (16:00 day 1)
  • Controlled Vocabularies - Drop the files in place (not covered here)
  • Managing Authority Lists - Drop the files in place and modify the workflow

  • Managing Metadata - Workflow config (16:00 day 1)
