Institutional Repository Management and Outreach
Dates: March 1st through 28th, 2021
Instructor: Rachel Walton
Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs
University-based institutional repositories (IRs) provide collections and services to campus communities and the public. Their purpose is to disseminate the digital products of research and scholarship on the web and offer a long-term preservation solution for the academy. This class is an introduction to IRs both practically and conceptually. It covers the role of IRs in higher education and libraries and dives into the nuts and bolts of IR administrative responsibilities, including policy writing, online content management, editorial workflows, permissions and access restrictions, and outreach strategies. Most critically, this course provides a foundational knowledge base or IR managers navigating the complicated world of open access publishing. The main objective of the course is to prepare and equip IR managers with the skills needed in their ongoing digital stewardship work.
Rachel Walton is a Digital Archivist, Records Manager, and Librarian at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. In that role she works to acquire, preserve, and provide access to the institution’s digital assets, including but not limited to, digitized materials related to the history of the college, the published and unpublished work of its faculty and students, and any electronic records that merit long term retention. Rachel also teaches information literacy classes, meets with patrons one-on-one for research consultations, supports courses with archival research components, and co-leads digital humanities projects across campus. Her scholarship centers on website usability, institutional repositories, research data management, and teaching with primary sources.
This is an online class that is taught asynchronously, meaning that participants do the work on their own time as their schedules allow. The class does not meet together at any particular times, although the instructor may set up optional synchronous chat sessions. Instruction includes readings and assignments in one-week segments. Class participation is in an online forum environment.
