From Jennifer McLennan, Director of Programs & Operations, SPARC
Registration is now open for the next installment of the popular SPARC
Digital Repositories Meeting. The meeting is hosted by SPARC, in
partnership with SPARC Europe and SPARC Japan/National Institute of
Informatics, and will be held November 8 & 9, 2010 at the
Renaissance Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland.
The SPARC digital repositories meetings have played an integral part in
advancing the potential of repositories to expand the dissemination of
scholarship and transform scholarly communication. First held in 2004,
the meeting is regularly hosted in the UK or Europe, Japan, and North
America, draws hundreds of participants from around the globe, and has
helped set the stage for key developments over the past six years.
The North American meeting is a unique forum for diverse stakeholders –
librarians, technologists, research producers, research funders,
publishers and commercial interests – to come together and consider how
best to leverage the practices and policies that have proven successful
and explore new challenges. The meeting is also a key venue for
librarians, the leading advocates for repositories, to share and refine
strategies to engage stakeholders across campus.
