ARL/SPARC/CNI workshop on institutional repositories

Workshop on Institutional Repositories
18 October 2002 in Washington, DC
Presented by ARL, SPARC & CNI

"Institutional Repositories: A Workshop on Creating an Infrastructure for
Faculty-Library Partnerships" will be offered in Washington, DC on Friday,
October 18.  Co-sponsored by ARL, SPARC, and CNI, this event will help
academic and research library and IT directors and their senior staffs
begin planning for the implementation of repositories designed to house
faculty works, such as articles, datasets, images, video, and courseware.

Speakers from libraries that are planning and implementing institutional
repositories will address key issues, including:

* what institutional repositories are and why institutions need them;
* what is involved in establishing and operating one;
* what are the key policy issues that need to be resolved;
* how to engage faculty participation;
* strategic and resource implications for the library.

The workshop will focus on the cultural and management dimensions of
establishing an institutional repository, rather than on technical
