CARL IR meeting just before Access

The Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) is holding a meeting on institutional repositories in conjunction with the Access 2008 conference. The meeting will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on October 1st at the Sheraton Hotel in Hamilton, Ontario

The purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for those working with IRs to network with colleagues.

The meeting will be fairly informal and involve a high level of participation by attendees.

The morning session will be a round table, in which participants describe the activities and challenges of their institution in regards to institutional repositories. The afternoon session will be a discussion of “hot topics”, one of which will be an update on Canadian funding agency open access policies. Other hot topics will be determined by participants.
