Who are the stakeholders for my IR?

 Take action

  • Talk to all of the stakeholders, from the very top, the middle-managers, and the people "in the trenches" and find out what they think about the project and what are their priorities.
  • Use some readings to establish a common language and framework with different stakeholders.
  • Establish clear roles and responsibilities and accountability measures.

    The Learning About Digital Institutional Repositories Seminars programme (LEADIRS) aims to describe and illustrate how to build an online institutional repository.  This workbook book supplements the seminar presentations and offers practical advice as well as work sheets you can use to get started with your own repository programme.  Where possible, it points you to real-world examples of planning aids or presentations used by university library teams in the UK and around the world.

  • Bailey, Jr., Charles W.  "Institutional Repository Bibliography." [Link]  

    The Institutional Repository Bibliography primarily includes published articles, books, and technical reports. Coverage of conference papers and unpublished e-prints is very selective.  All included works are in English.  The bibliography does not cover digital media works (such as MP3 files), editorials, e-mail messages, interviews, letters to the editor, news articles, presentation slides or transcripts, or web log postings.  Most sources have been published from 2000 through the present; however, a limited number of key sources published prior to 2000 are also included.
