Creative Staffing Solutions for Institutional Repositories

One of the most common questions we encounter is, “How are others staffing their IR initiatives?” Kim Myers, Digital Repository Specialist at The College at Brockport and a 2014 bepress IR All-Star, has come up with some creative solutions that not only help address lean staffing situations but also develop invaluable feelings of investment and ownership among a broad base of stakeholders both inside and outside the library.

In this webinar, Kim shares the strategies that have led to 68% of Brockport’s library staff participating in repository projects in a variety of ways. In addition, several of Kim’s colleagues at Brockport’s Drake Memorial Library share their experiences combining Digital Commons with other duties.
