The CRC says Goodbye to Peter Millington

The CRC says Goodbye and a Happy Retirement to Peter Millington.


Peter has been our Technical Development Officer since early 2006 and has been instrumental and fundamental to the design, growth, development and maintenance of the SHERPA Services run from here at the CRC at the University. These services, RoMEO, JULIET, OpenDOAR, FACT and the forthcoming REF system, are used and appreciated around the world, and take very high levels of use – (RoMEO’s API gets about 250,000 uses per day) – and at very high accuracy, which is a testament to Peter’s professionalism and abilities.

In addition, through his work at the CRC, Peter has contributed to some of the most prominent and influential Open Access initiatives and projects of the last decade, in particular the national RSP support project and the international DRIVER initiative.


Peter receiving his gifts

Peter has always been far more than a technical development person. With a PhD and an active publication record in folklore, with a background in information science and experience in the commercial world, Peter has been able to bring to bear different perspectives to every problem, every analysis and design decision, which have been invaluable and have guided the services through to their current enviable reputation.


We are very sad to see Peter go, but wish him all the very best in what promises to be an active and packed retirement.


RoMEO, RoMEO! Wherefore art thou RoMEO?…err., because of Peter

    Hello dear Peter, I wish you all the best in your new life stage 😉
    Thank you for sharing your knowledge, with me.

    Remember that you have a friend in Guadalajara, Jalisco, México.
