Coalition for Networked Information
Listen to an audio recording of this presentation:
The Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) held two sessions of the Executive Roundtable “Rethinking Institutional Repository Strategies” just prior to the start of this membership meeting. There was high demand for participation in these events, so while we will produce a written summary, this session is intended to summarize and to some extent synthesize what we heard and what we learned. I’ll review the questions that framed the Roundtable and the major themes that surfaced. The focus of the Roundtable was to share strategies, policies, experiences, and perspectives on institutional and consortial activities in this area. Some potential topics on the table included the evolution of thinking about the purpose and objectives of different IRs, assessing IRs, uptake of repositories by various sectors of institutional populations, barriers to success, use of cloud services/platforms for IRs, and interfacing with SHARE, CHORUS, and disciplinary and funder repositories.
