Increasing the full-text deposits in your institutional repository

12th June 2013

Charing Cross Hotel, London

* Picture from Dave's blog []


This one day event is aimed at those working in research repositories and higher education libraries but may be of interest to a wider audience including researchers. The event will focus on three main topics: (a) implementation of self-archiving in institutional repositories, (b) deposit tools, and (c) depositing workflow.

During the first half of the event there will be presentations of the JISC-funded projects related to depositing full-text content in institutional repositories, while during the second half, repositories’ managers will discuss about their experience using these tools and recommend practices.

The purpose of this event is to raise the issue of depositing in HEIs repositories and research centres, and work towards the creation of a cultural shift, where self-archiving would be part of the researchers’ everyday agenda.
