An Institutional Repository - Presentations in Rod Library
On Wednesday, April 20th, Rod Library will be hosting two presentations on the bepress Digital Commons, an institutional repository software currently being reviewed by UNI, at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. in Rod Library Room 324. These sessions will be conducted by bepress representatives. They are being held as a follow-up to the survey on institutional repositories conducted in December 2010.
An institutional repository would provide UNI with a means to build a centralized, web-based collection of digital versions of research and scholarly products for which authors have retained selected rights. A repository can enhance accessibility, serve as a preservation tool, and highlight the research and scholarship occurring at the university. Additional information about institutional repositories and links to readings on the topic is available at http://www.library.uni.edu/scholarly-communication/institutional-repository
