Getting the Most Out of Your Institutional Repository:
Gathering Content and Building Use

December 3, 2007NAL

Cosponsored by PALINET


About the Forum

A lot goes into building an institutional repository. But once itís in place, how do you make sure that you take advantage of its benefits? During NISO's one-day forum you will hear from speakers who address the next, key steps to making the most of your repository. This one-day event asks library and information service providers to think about how to take advantage of an organization's repository once it is implemented by looking at:

  • Populating the repository
  • Metadata and formatting challenges
  • Rights management issues
  • The OAI Object Reuse and Exchange Project
  • Faculty use and attitudes
  • Electronic theses and dissertations
  • And additional related topics
