603. SMARTech at Georgia Tech: The Role of an Institutional Repository in a University Archives

Saturday, August 20, 2005
8:00 AM-9:30 AM

  Recorded session


Jody Thompson, Chair

Institutional repositories offer a solution for preserving campus publications now disseminated digitally. Georgia Tech implemented DSpace software in its SMARTech service to gather much of the campus intellectual output traditionally collected by the archives . The speakers examine archivists' involvement in shaping repository policies, campus outreach, and publicity, and their role in bringing traditional archival practices and concerns to the forefront in the repository program, offering a comparison of SMARTech to other repository projects.
