Many libraries have joined the movement to create an 
institutional repository, providing a mechanism to acquire, 
maintain, and preserve scholarly and other material of lasting 
value to the institution. The presentations will focus on the 
challenges, pitfalls and promises of establishing and supporting 
institutional repositories. A discussion of the legal and access 
issues as well as various IR platforms and models will allow 
attendees to make informed decisions regarding the introduction 
of an institutional repository.
