Description

You know how great your IR is going to be, but how do you convey that to the faculty and administration at your institution? That was one of the challenges the Cardozo Law Library faced as we started working on LARC, our Digital Commons repository, and building out Selected Works. The challenge of appealing to two distinct groups (with plenty of sub-groups) was just the beginning. From the initial discussions of what an IR is and why open access is important to determining how the platform could be best utilized to encompass all scholarship to laying out workflows and providing realistic expectations, we championed LARC. Find out how we crafted LARC’s mission, reached out to faculty, and aligned ourselves with institutional objectives to get everyone (mostly) on the LARC-bandwagon.
