SPARC and SPARC Europe welcome your participation in the upcoming workshop,
"Institutional Repositories: The Next Stage," to be held November 18-19,
2004 in Washington, DC.
Attendees of this two-day workshop, open to the international community,
will gain a practical, hands-on understanding of strategies critical to the
success of their Institutional Repository. Attendees will hear from
experienced leaders in the IR field as well as those involved in related
innovative and important projects. The workshop will benefit those with
fully functioning IRs as well as those in the early stages of considering
such an initiative. There will be a special focus on tactics for working
with faculty and researchers to make IRs a success. This workshop will be
platform-independent and will focus primarily on non-technical issues
relating to the successful implementation of IRs. The audience may include
university provosts and administrators, library directors and managers,
Institutional Repository coordinators, and others.
Please consider submitting a paper or poster to this workshop, and sharing
with others the experience you have gained building your Institutional
Repository. The call for papers and posters is online at:
