Institutional incentives


Some nice remarks in Diglet on Paul Conway’s recent presentation on institutional repositories at OCLC.

I can’t think of a better way for a librarian in the year 2004 to spend an hour than to listen to this presentation by Paul Conway, Director, Information Technology Services, Perkins Library, Duke University. Download the slides and the MP3 file so you can listen and watch at the same time. [Diglet: Paul Conway: Institutional Repositories: Is There Anything Left to Say?]

Paul approached his topic from an archival perspective, and also discussed different stakeholder incentives to archive, drawing on the work of Brian Lavoie.

Library leaders should be drawn from across the organization. Any idea that technology leaders are overly specialised or too distant from general library work is outmoded and counter-productive.
