Open Repositories Working Group

This working group, assembled by CARL’s Advancing Research Committee in January 2018, will work in collaboration with the Canadian repository community to define a strategic vision for repositories as well as helping to move the community forward around shared goals and objectives. To ensure the working group is effective, it is essential that this group include representation from both those managing repositories and communicating with researchers as well as library directors who guide and shape organizational priorities.
