About the Webcast

Institutional repositories (IRs) represent a rapidly growing movement in scholarly communication to collect, preserve, and provide access to the digital resources of scholarly research. This live, interactive Web presentation brings to you information about IRs and their increasing importance to scholarly communication. By providing you with direct access to hands-on experts, this Webcast gives library staff, campus faculty, and administrators an opportunity to explore this topic in a shared learning environment.

Rick Johnson, SPARC Enterprise Director, will begin this session with an introduction to the Webcast, followed by three panelists who will discuss institutional repositories' benefits, uses, and users. In addition, the panelists will address concerns and answer viewer questions as a means to begin or further discussion on campuses.
