Beyond the Institutional Repository: Campus Research Distribution Strategies

The idea that universities and libraries ought to be more involved in developing a university's research distribution policy and developing strategies for the distribution of research and scholarship is one that is sparking a lot of interest among provosts and other university administrators. Institutional repositories provide an important infrastructure for developing research distribution strategies, but many other aspects such as scholarly communication issues, copyright issues, campus publishing policies and strategies, faculty copyright and intellectual property education and issues, electronic theses and dissertations, and open access publishing must also be part of the discussion.
