  • Institutional Repository Partnership Project - ICPSR – Michigan [Link]

"This project is about building partnerships between institutional respositories and social science data archives. Improvements in data processing and storage technology are resulting in an increase in research data on a variety of social, economic, and political subjects. Many datasets could be profitably reanalyzed, but they are at danger of being lost since they are never properly archived. Institutional repositories are charged by their institutions to preserve the scholarly products of their faculty or institution, but not all feel prepared to curate and archive social science data. How can data archives and institutional repositories improve coordination to successfully work together to archive data?"

"In this hour-long webcast, The University of Massachusetts' institutional repository is used as a case study to explore: * how the new digital repository service has affected the way librarians envision our place in the future of the academy, * how the academy is changing its view of the library's role, * new tools and skills that we are developing to fulfill this service, and * new partnerships that we have created and fostered to exploit this new vision."
