Description

This IR All-Star rode an initial wave of pent-up demand to shoot out of the gate with a long list of projects and collections in need of showcasing.  She has been able to keep momentum that initial success through a grassroots, collaborative approach meeting researchers where they are: proof of concepts for the hesitant and complete autonomy for the super users.  If there is an underlying philosophy to her approach it might be that every collection is special to them and must be treated that way.

STARS: Shining a Light on UCF

What do you do when you see the need for an institutional repository on your campus but lack funding, dedicated staff, and an Open Access mandate? This presentation will explore how the University of Central Florida took a grassroots approach to turn existing needs and growing digital projects into an active, robust repository built on community partnerships and campus connections. Learn how embracing collaborations and cultivating relationships can have you reaching for the stars and counting your downloads.
