The IR Today: A Necessary Campus Investment

An institutional repository is no longer “just a library project”: the IR is now a core part of campus infrastructure, and serves the university’s highest goals. How can your library secure the resources you need to launch a successful IR?

In this webinar we share how libraries of different sizes and resources have made the case for funding from campus groups including upper administration, the research office, and the graduate school, by demonstrating how the IR supports:

• Improving recruitment and retention
• Increasing grant-funded research
• Raising the visibility of the institution and its experts
