Engaging Your Campus in Utilizing Institutional Repositories

Institutional repository (IR) best practices include engagement with administrators, faculty, staff, and students. Acquisition of research scholarship, publications, student theses/dissertations, and other academic objects can be challenging and frustrating. Marianne's presentation will focus on successful marketing strategies, best practices for garnering IR content, and the development of open access mandates.
