The Ohio State University’s Knowledge Bank: An Institutional Repository in Practice

Featured Presenter: Maureen P. Walsh, Metadata Librarian and Assistant
Professor, The Ohio State University Libraries.

Over the last several months, you’ve expressed a great deal of interest in The Ohio State University’s “Knowledge Bank”.  Maureen presented an overview of how decisions made in the implementation and on-going support of an institutional repository affect accessibility, interoperability, shareability, quality, sustainability, and preservation. The roles and responsibilities of institutional  repository staff and the communities served, self-archiving and/or proxy archiving, metadata application profiles, metadata quality control, workflows, customized submission forms and templates, and format support were addressed and practical outcomes of choices made were discussed.

We had 36 attendees at Maureen’s presentation.  If you missed this event you can view Maureen Walsh’s presentation here.
