Kubilius, Ramune K.
The medical institutional repository landscape is ever evolving and presents challenges for anyone who wishes to research it for presentation or publication. Librarians are one of the central stakeholders in the medical IR world, but not all librarians may be equally immersed in this area. Those who are directly involved may research and report on use cases and institution or platform-specific IR scenarios. Yet, it can be argued that in many instances, there is an important reason for introductory material on the world of repositories, in providing background and context. No matter one's job title or responsibilities, there are opportunities to become involved in exploring the world of repositories- for internal work at an institution, or externally in professional work. Contributions can vary: doing background research, providing introductory slides (on statistics, platforms, aspirational IRs to examine, other information) for an in-service workshop for colleagues, identifying and seeking out colleagues who can contribute expertise for professional collaborative research, publication, or presentation projects. Based on examples from the past half dozen years, this presentation consists of some sources, tips, and caveats for those who might be called upon to be part of the work involved in surveying the world of medical institutional repositories.
