Institutional Repositories: Strategies for the Present and the Future
to be published in: NASIG 2008 Conference Proceedings, The Serials Librarian (2008)
Abstract
Institutional repositories are tools to support, disseminate and showcase the scholarly communications and intellectual life of an institution. A successful repository requires planning and a defined focus, as well as an attractive name and design. To achieve success, the IR must serve faculty on faculty’s terms; the librarian’s role is to collaborate with faculty and ensure that the services of the IR meet their needs. Foster, Bankier and Wiley offer strategies for success drawn from their work creating successful institutional repositories.
