Target Audience: Technical services librarians, information technology librarians, administrators
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be prepared to compare features of a faculty publications website and an institutional repository, and assess the advantages of each model.
2. Participants will be able to create new job opportunities for technical services staff.

Institutional repositories are designed to collect, preserve, and disseminate in digital format the intellectual output of an institution. As such, institutional repositories are gaining in recognition as a key factor in emerging digital research and the ability to provide free and unrestricted access to faculty research. A faculty publications website provides similar access, but with different requirements and expectations. Faculty publications websites focus on listing the published works of current faculty, and may not provide open access to all of the publications listed. The model that an institution follows will be guided by its mission and the resources available to support it. As traditional work routines in technical services diminish, this program demonstrates how technical services staff can continue to support the library's evolving mission.
