Description

Until fall 2020, the Computer Science department at Dartmouth College maintained an online collection of technical reports on their website. Faculty and librarians have worked together to transfer the collection to the school's institutional repository, Dartmouth Digital Commons. The project involved several major components: the creation of a space in the IR that met the specific needs of the collection, the transfer of existing materials so that the previous site could be deleted without losing any content, and the development of a workflow for adding future materials.

In this presentation, the librarian responsible for the project will describe the process. The technical aspects will be briefly described, but the presenter will focus on the experience of communicating with faculty to adapt the IR to match their needs as closely as possible.
