Institutional Repositories Webinar Series

Supported by Berkeley Electronic Press, this series of webinars on institutional repositories is based on the presentations at the ALCTS 2009 Midwinter Symposium. The sessions have included a brief history of institutional repositories, key benefits and possible obstacles to a successful IR implementation, and a discussion of the future of the institutional repository within the larger context of the rapidly changing scholarly communication landscape.
