This panel discussion brings together representatives from three different ARL libraries in varied academic settings who want to exploit the advantages of the new scholarly communications framework of institutional repositories (IR). The panelists will discuss their motivations for wanting to implement an IR, indicate the available resources within their respective institutions and collaboratives, and then briefly cover their strategies for defining, scoping and implementing IRs.
