Repository managers from all Canadian institutions (CARL and non-CARL) are welcome and encouraged to attend. This meeting for IR managers is concurrent with the CARL directors’ Fall General Meeting.

The meeting will begin with a review of the current landscape for IRs in Canada, and move on to focused discussion of the following current IR operational issues:

  • Service models and resourcing
  • Interoperability and enhancing discovery for IR content
  • Reducing researcher burden for populating repositories
    • Collective approaches to leveraging existing publication data
    • Identifying campus stakeholders for engaging with the IR in support of institutional mission
    • Sustainable approaches for content harvesting
