More and more health science libraries are turning to institutional repositories to promote their organization’s research. Repositories, already common at academic institutions, help institutions preserve, organize, and share articles, data, and other institutional knowledge.
Join Ellen Brassil, Director, Health Sciences Library at Baystate Health, and Dina McKelvy, Director, Library and Knowledge Services at Maine Medical Center, to learn about their decisions to implement repositories for their organizations.
Date/Time: Sunday, May 20th, 2018, 2:00 – 2:55pm
Location: Piedmont Room, Hyatt Regency Atlanta
Facilitated by Dave Stout of bepress, Ellen and Dina will share how repositories have made it possible to:
- Raise the visibility of medical research and showcase individual and institutional expertise
- Provide a publication venue for researchers, students, and practitioners
- Track publication output and report on researcher productivity
These valuable services, in turn, have made their libraries more visible and relevant to the rest of their organizations. Attendees will come away with a concrete sense of how they can identify needs at their institutions, get support from strategic partners, and collaborate with various stakeholders.
