On October 24th, Wright State’s Digital Services Department hosted the first Ohio IR Day at the State Library of Ohio. Librarians, archivists, and technologists from throughout the state came together to discuss IRs as a part of celebrating Open Access Week. A total of 32 people attended Ohio IR Day. Attendees came from a variety of institutions including public and private academic libraries, OhioLINK, the Ohio History Connection, and even an academic librarian from out of state.
Below are the resulting presentations from the inaugural Ohio IR Day. Ann Connolly of bepress discussed the Role of IRs in Open Access. The other presentations were given during the lightning rounds sessions, allowing participants to briefly share issues they encounter in the day-to-day operations of an Institutional Repository.
