Most of the literature related to creating an institutional repository program suggests starting small -- either with one department or a project such as electronic theses and dissertations. At Bucknell University, we took an entirely different approach in an attempt to get broader experience by working with a cross-section of members of the university community and multiple types of digital objects all in one shot. This initial collection was built around Bucknell's participation in Focus the Nation, a one-day national teach-in being held at colleges and universities, designed to raise awareness about environmental issues. The resulting archive includes video and slide shows from faculty presentations, digital images taken of students and faculty with exhibits, electronic copies of research posters, and other relevant materials. Join us to learn about our experiences, problems encountered, and success stories as we managed to get an institutional repository program off the ground in less than two months. Topics will include: faculty copyright issues, developing a license for submitting materials to a repository; video recording an event from a novice's perspective; working with video files; using an Akamai server; attempting to build a collection with other institutions; getting submissions from students; and Open Access 101 for faculty -- a.k.a., yes, it will be accessible on the Internet.
