Co-hosts/moderators: Jordan Hale, Digital Repositories Librarian (University of Waterloo), Jessica Lange, Scholarly Communications Librarian (McGill University)

In an effort to connect institutional repositories across Canada, this community call will allow individuals to meet and discuss common issues/challenges in Canadian repositories. As a first topic, we will moderate a discussion around the questions of “What’s working well in your repository?” and “What’s the biggest challenge you’re facing?”. We will lead off the discussion with a roundtable, introducing participants and giving a brief overview of their repository.

We welcome all staff who are working with their institutional repositories, including developers and those working on content recruitment. This 60 minute call will be moderated by Jordan Hale and Jessica Lange from the CARL Open Repository Working Group (ORWG), Task Group for Community Building & Engagement.
