When considering and launching an institutional repository, staffing is often the first question on people’s minds. Many libraries are eager to embark on this project but are anxious they’ll need to hire someone to take the wheel. The good news is many institutions have come up with creative staffing solutions that ensure repository growth and development with far less than 1 FTE. In this presentation, Kathleen Spring shares how she manages Linfield College's institutional repository with the vital contributions of student workers. She discusses some of the carefully designed workflows that meet Linfield’s repository needs and talks about how other institutions might apply the same strategies.


This invited presentation was given as part of the Digital Commons Community Webinar series, sponsored by bepress.
