"The Canadian Association of Research Libraries, the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) and University of Toronto Libraries, are collaboratively developing a National Institutional Repository Service (‘Scholaris’) to be hosted by Scholars Portal. Starting with an early adopters program of a limited number of institutions, the goal is to build Scholaris into a robust and scalable multi-institutional national repository service – one that is strengthened by a responsive, collaborative community of experts and repository practitioners. Scholars Portal will provide reliable technical hosting, security measures, monitoring, and technical support in line with other services currently being offered, with the potential for integrating digital preservation and other services/workflows as a benefit to participating organizations.

With the decision to implement this national DSpace-based service, the establishment of specialized expert groups becomes essential. These groups will play a pivotal role, lending expertise and support to the fundamental segments of the project. Participation offers a chance to help shape the national infrastructure service.

We are inviting expressions of interest for two new expert groups related to this work:

  • Scholaris Metadata and Discovery Expert Group (S-MDEG)
  • Scholaris Electronic Theses and Dissertations Expert Group (S-ETEG)..."
