Jorum is a Jisc funded Service in Development in UK Further and Higher Education, to collect and share learning and teaching materials, allowing their reuse and repurposing. This free online repository service forms a key part of the Jisc Information Environment, and is intended to become part of the wider landscape of repositories being developed institutionally, locally, regionally or across subject areas. We use a modified version of DSpace for Jorum.
Jorum is run by Mimas, based at the University of Manchester.
The word ‘Jorum’ is of Biblical origin and means a collecting (or drinking) bowl.
