A New Institutional Repository: Building from the Ground Up
Shedd, Julie D.
The MSU Libraries began the implementation of an IR in the fall of 2014. A committee was appointed to build the IR from the ground up and tasked with researching common practices, writing policies & procedures, determining scope, and developing a marketing plan. The presentation will provide an overview of the processes and decisions on which the new MSU IR is built. We will review the implementation of DSpace and provide suggestions on how to implement it at other institutions.
