* Workshop: If you build it, will they come? Best practices for managing an institutional repository
* Speakers: Lisa Goddard, Don Taylor, Tara
''Description:'' Many BC institutions have just heard the news that an institutional repository (IR) is imminent for them. Others already have an established IR but feel that it’s time for a spring polish. In either situation, you will benefit from hearing 3 experts speak about their experiences managing an IR. Presenters will touch on variety of topics during the 3 hours including policy development, content recruitment, metadata, staffing, and copyright. This workshop will offer a chance to hear what worked, and what didn’t work, at three university libraries. It will also be a great chance to share concerns and best practices with others in the province who are dealing with the challenges of establishing an IR.
