About This Conference


About Northeast Institutional Repository Day

A group of librarians from New England collaborated to organize the first-ever Northeast Institutional Repository Day (NIRD) on June 18, 2019. The goal of this free event was to bring together all in the Northeast (and beyond) who manage or are interested in institutional repositories, digital collections, and digital preservation. We are platform agnostic. The second annual Northeast Institutional Repository Day 2020 (NIRD20) was a free virtual event held on December 3, 2020.
