This webcast discusses Institutional Repositories (IRs) in the context of the recent surge in open access to scholarly material, and presents some of the issues early implementers have encountered, with particular emphasis on the Simon Fraser University Library Institutional Repository. Institutional Repositories are the current best practice for bringing together the intellectual output of an university in one place. Complimenting this centralized approach is IR’s capacity to be part of a larger network through the Open Archives Initiative. Combined, these two aspects ensure that working papers, journal articles, theses, reports, and course materials are discoverable and accessible into the future.
