The Sky's the Limit: Scholarly Communication, Digital Initiatives, Institutional Repositories, and Subject Librarians

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The University of Central Florida's institutional repository, STARS (Showcase of Text, Archives, Research & Scholarship), has presented new opportunities for collaboration amongst the Libraries' Office of Scholarly Communication, Digital Initiatives, Research Services, and Subject Librarians. Building on efforts to proactively promote scholarly communication initiatives to the university community, these four units have used the institutional repository as a foundation for collaboration, outreach, marketing and educational efforts. This presentation will give an overview of STARS and highlight the role the IR has in increasing the collaborative efforts of these four units.

A four person panel representing four different perspectives will discuss strategies designed to generate IR interest and content from the university community. Successful ventures and lessons learned will provide insight into creating a productive inter-departmental framework that is geared towards supporting student and faculty IR projects. Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and share ideas from their own IR perspectives. After participating in this program, attendees will be able to develop winning IR collaboration strategies for their own institution.
