Up-coming E-Forum discussion from ALCTS, Dec. 3-5, 2008
"Institutional repositories", a pre-Midwinter Symposium discussion moderated by Pamela Bluh, University of Maryland.
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 discussion will focus on the challenges, pitfalls and promises of establishing and supporting institutional repositories, as well as the legal and access issues.
