Rethinking Repositories

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

At many institutions, repository initiatives provide access, preservation and services for multiple programs - at-risk digital special collections, digitized materials, and the outputs of research, including publications and data. No single software stack, platform, service portfolio, or even library program can support all of these areas. Given this diffusion of stakeholders, needs, and processes, is there a unifying aspect for the institutional repository? If not, then what do we mean by "institutional repository?" In a time where both the needs of researchers and repository technologies are rapidly evolving, what strategies should libraries employ for developing technology, staffing, services, and policies to provide access and preservation for a wide range of institutional assets? In this panel discussion, repository leaders from the University of North Carolina and Duke University will start a conversation by describing their approaches, what they have learned, and how they think these services should evolve. They will pose some provocative questions for discussion with all attendees, and hope to stimulate a better understanding of cohesive approaches for repository programs.
