Challenges and Opportunities for Medical Institutional Repositories

Thomas Jefferson University Library and University of Massachusetts Medical School Library have two important things in common: successful institutional repositories and experienced library leaders that developed them.

Dan Kipnis and Ann Koopman of Thomas Jefferson University, and Lisa Palmer of University of Massachusetts Medical School discuss institutional repositories (IRs) at medical schools in this webinar.

Speakers explore how each organization decided to start an IR, how the IRs have evolved, unique IR collections, successful partnerships, challenges and opportunities, and the future of medical IRs.
