But wait! There's more! : Using your eprint repository to advance multiple institutional objectives while protecting (and advancing)your open access objectives
Callan, Paula A. (2007) But wait! There's more! : Using your eprint repository to advance multiple institutional objectives while protecting (and advancing)your open access objectives. In 5th Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication (OAI5), CERN, Geneva. (Unpublished)
publications in their institutional repository, "function creep" is almost inevitable. In recent years, it has become obvious to researchers, university administrators and even governments that these repositories could be used to fulfil other functions and to advance objectives other than open access. On the whole, this is a good thing as it is much easier to make business case for a multi-functional institutional repository. A repository that addresses multiple needs and is integrated into the academic workspace at various points is also more likely to achieve a high uptake level - reaching beyond the enthusiastic "early adopters". However, if care is not taken, there is a danger that the open access agenda could get swamped or even lost. This poster will examine the various ways in which the eprint repository at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane (Australia) is being used and the strategies in place to not only protect, but to advance, the open access agenda along the way.
