The CARL-OpenAIRE Collaboration: Now How Do We Make This Happen at Our Institutions?

Following up on the October 26th webinar, Looking for a needle in a haystack: Increasing the international visibility of Canadian research through the CARL-OpenAIRE collaboration (see recording here), the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) is pleased to present two more opportunities for those involved in the management of Canadian open repositories or research outputs, to learn about options for having their repository’s contents reflected in OpenAIRE.

Canadian research outputs are disseminated using numerous platforms, publishers, and repositories around the world. OpenAIRE is an open source, community-based discovery service, funded by the European Commission (EC), that tracks research outputs such as data, articles, monographs and more. OpenAIRE enables discovery of this content by aggregating metadata and full text content from thousands of data providers, allowing institutions, researchers and funders to discover this content more easily.
