Depending on the repositories you work with, you could also try checking
out events focused on those. Duraspace hosts some pretty good webinars
about DSpace and Fedora (older ones are archived online), and there's going

you're interested in using Hydra/Fedora. ASERL has also had some good
webinars on open access and scholarly communications.
