Congratulations to the Forthcoming 2016 IR All-Stars!

Our annual bepress Digital Commons IR All-Stars awards spotlight four individuals from the Digital Commons community who have demonstrated a unique, high-impact, and replicable approach to IR success, and have made a meaningful contribution to the scholarly communications community as a whole. We are very excited to announce that this year’s group of All-Stars has officially been selected!

As always, selecting just four All-Stars was an incredible challenge. This year, in addition to accepting nominations from within bepress, we requested nominations from the Digital Commons community. We know we have many dedicated and outstanding Digital Commons administrators; this gave us an opportunity to hear from the field and get a full picture of the work many of you are doing. We received many wonderful nominations citing day-to-day leadership, special projects, and contributions to the community—we wish we could honor you all.

All-Stars must have:

  • At least 3 years as an IR manager.
  • A track record of vibrant repository collection growth, and an innovative and tireless approach to engaging faculty and others on campus in order to support their scholarly communications needs.
  • A demonstrated eagerness to share and teach others, whether through presentations, articles, case studies, or videos, that provide guidelines and best practices so others can replicate the strategies that made the IR manager an IR All-Star.

Over the next month, we’ll be announcing and highlighting the accomplishments of this year’s IR All-Stars here on the DC Telegraph, and linking to some of the amazing resources they’ve created. Check back next week for our first All-Star!
