Integrating an Institutional Repository with Other Library Technologies

A session at LITA Forum

Sunday 15th November, 2015

9:00am to 9:45am (CST)

Many institutions have created, or are in the process of creating, digital repositories for their scholarly content and other electronic materials. Repository systems typically use different technology than other library systems, and have separate discovery interfaces, which adds another silo of content to our library’s already fragmented electronic footprint. This talk covers ways we have integrated our digital library with our other electronic resource systems, such as our link resolver. We will discuss our experience with implementing these changes as well as their benefits and limitations.
