Re: Why Cornell's Institutional Repository Is Near-Empty

Two suggestions:

(1) A reminder that the "Patchwork Mandate" is a reasonable, 
incremental response for open access advocates at a sprawling 
institution like Cornell.

See http://eprints.utas.edu.au/410/; see also

(2) At least on American campuses, faculty are much more likely 
to support a mandate if they vote to impose it upon themselves 
rather than have it imposed by an administrator.  Look for a 
faculty champion who would be willing to take on this cause.
