From planning to promoting and everything in between, this new "How-To-Do-It Manual" fills the need for a book focused on managing your institutional repository (IR). Author Jonathan Nabe covers every aspect of IR development in detail, and the book's clear and logical organization makes it valuable as a cover-to-cover read or for consulting as a reference. Following an in-depth look into IR uses, benefits, and management practices, there is start-to-finish guidance covering: the librarian's role in IR implementation; planning, budgeting, and staffing; commercial and open source platforms; policy-writing; marketing techniques; collection development and expansion; and, use and assessment. An experienced IR coordinator himself, Nabe also includes real-life examples of IR development from respected academic libraries including Cornell University, Colorado State University, and Macalester College. Each one offers expert advice and best practices that you can replicate in your own project. Whether you are an IR newcomer looking for help at every step of the way, or an experienced coordinator seeking to expand the size and use of your existing IR, this truly unique resource will be an invaluable addition to your professional collection.
