A14. A Tale of Two Repositories

A session at SUNYLA 2013

Thursday 13th June, 2013

10:30am to 12:00pm (EST)

Libraries are steadily growing more engaged with issues of open access and scholarly communication. One result of this emphasis is that institutional repositories are becoming more popular even among colleges that emphasize teaching as well as research. Even at similar schools, and using the same platform, it is possible to take quite divergent approaches towards managing the repository. In this session, repository managers at SUNY Plattsburgh and The College at Brockport share their experiences in getting their repositories up and running, including staffing, workflows and content decisions. Pick the model that works for you!


  • Two different models for staffing and populating an institutional repository
  • Ways in which to engage faculty and students in the work of the repository
  • Ways in which the library can begin taking on a new role as publisher
