The Changing Roles of Repositories: Where We Are and Where We Are Headed
MetadataShow full item record
This presentation examines the past, present, and future role of institutional repositories (IRs). IRs rapidly rose to prominence in libraries, but failed to live up to the promise of transforming scholarly communication. A decade since the debut of DSpace, IRs today look very different in their content and services. We will present the results of an in‐depth survey of OR & WA repository managers. The role of IRs is now evolving to include support for data curation, e‐research, and scholarly networks. The session concluded with a discussion of how repository managers can better network and share expertise. Files ending in .csv are plain-text, comma-delimited files containing survey responses from participants.
