If You Build It Will They Come? Issues in Institutional Repository Implementation, Promotion and MaintenanceLibrary Technology Conference
DescriptionWhile the main focus of discussion regarding Institutional Repositories has been large research institutions, repositories at small and medium-sized institutions, like North Dakota State University, exist and are meeting many of the same research and preservation objectives including increasing institutional visibility, supporting teaching and learning, and ensuring item remain continuously accessible. As budgets decrease and demand for electronic resources continue to increase can you create and maintain a sustainable IR? Yes, you can! This presentation will look at the creation and pilot project of an IR on a limited budget using DSpace. This session will focus on the period beyond creation and discuss the theory that if you build it they will contribute, and discuss marketing, advertising and technical strategies to grow an IR.
