Description

The purpose of this presentation is to share our experiences and to highlight lessons learned from the establishment of our institutional repository while collaborating in a state-wide initiative to showcase the scholarly output of New Jersey researchers. We will discuss how we collaborated with multiple stakeholders from across the campus to establish an open, discoverable, and sustainable resource, to support the University's vision plan and to connect users to our research in the digital age. Through the implementation of new technology, we preserve the history of our University and provide access to the intellectual capital of our faculty and students.
