Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

To kick off a series of M&M discussions this May exploring the current landscape of digital repositories (or, What We Talk about When We Talk about Repositories), we'll start local: What are institutional repositories? What is their value to academic institutions? How are they used, and how can that use best be encouraged and improved?

Poynder, Richard. (2016, September 22). "Q&A with CNI's Clifford Lynch: Time to re-think the institutional repository?" Open and Shut? http://poynder.blogspot.co.uk/2016/09/q-with-cnis-clifford-lynch-time-to-re_22.html (Accessed 2017 April 28).
