Connotea Imports 2012-03-08
"During the first and second quarters of 2012, Working Group 1 will be launching a new project to collect and disseminate COAR-recommended sustainable best practices related to populating repositories. The report will include regional and global trends, selected case studies, and general best practices from institutions around the world. The focus will be on strategies and operations that are sustainable over the long-term and can be replicated at other institutions. Additional information will also be posted to this website. Topics included in the report related to populating repositories will include themes such as:  Lessons learned: what’s worked and what hasn’t.  Workflows or strategies to gather content and populate repositories over time.  Long-term staffing, operational plans, or campus partnerships that have lead to consistently higher rates of deposit.  Automated processes to gather content and populate repositories.  Any other long-term activities or operations that resulted in higher levels of article deposit. If you have any suggestions for appropriate resources, please email [firstname.lastname@example.org] any documents that you think might be relevant including handouts, brochures, articles, websites, or your own description of an initiative. The final report is expected in May 2012...."
