We recently surveyed interest in holding a special day dedicated to Institutional Repositories across Ohio as part of Open Access Week and received a tremendous response to our inquiry! Thus, we are moving forward with holding an informal get-together and knowledge share.
The Ohio IR Day will take place on October 24, 2014 at the State Library of Ohio Boardroom (274 E 1st Ave # 100, Columbus, OH 43201) from 10:00am-2:00pm.
The day will consist of introductions, Lightning Rounds, Birds of a Feather discussion, and a speaker from bepress on IRs.
We are currently soliciting ideas for the Lightning Rounds. We hope to have topics covered such as workflow, outreach, content types, assessment, scholarly communication, etc. If you would like to participate in the Lightning Rounds, please include your topic when registering and plan to speak for 5 minutes.
Instead of providing lunch, we ask you to bring your own or contribute $5.00 and we will pick up pizza and drinks.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
We look forward to seeing you there!
-Jane, Elisabeth, and Andrew
