    • The IR as infrastructure Shifting from repository-centric services to scholar-centric services Sarah L. Shreeves University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign April 11, 2008
    • Outline
      • What IDEALS is
      • How we organized ourselves around IDEALS
      • How we are re-organizing ourselves
    • Origins of IDEALS
      • Provost funded
      • Joint project between CITES and the Library
      • Staffing
    • Purpose?
      • Preserve research and scholarship
      • Disseminate and promote research and scholarship
    • Scope?
      • Research
      • Creative works
      • Scholarship
      • Material reflecting intellectual environment of campus
    • What type of materials? Also audio and video
    • Why DSpace? http://ideals.uiuc.edu/ http://ideals.uiuc.edu/wiki/
    • Customizations to DSpace
      • Integration with existing systems
      • Other important customizations
      • - reorganization of the submission workflow
      • - statistics
      • - embargo
    • Things that don’t work
      • Faculty aren’t going to deposit on their own unless they have real motivation
      • Faculty aren’t going to figure out copyright on their own
      • No system does preservation
    • Things that work
      • Make sure that your material is indexed by Google
      • Work with subject librarians
      • Allow departments / centers some control over their own communities
      • Mediated deposit (but distributed)
      • Copyright consulting services
      • Allow deposit into an uncategorized community
      • Involve your preservation librarian
    • So where are we now?
      • 4100 items
      • 121000 downloads since stats turned on in Dec 2006
      • 415 people registered on the system
      • The UIUC Campus:
      • 2,971 Faculty: 1,402 tenured, 570 tenure track, and 1000 other faculty
      • 11,431 graduate and professional students
      • 16 colleges
    • What is the purpose of IDEALS again?
    • Realization
      • We shouldn’t be organizing around the IR
      • We should be organizing around the services the scholar needs
    • What does this mean?
      • Help dissemination activities even if they don’t benefit the IR
        • Deposit into pubmed central
        • What about other disciplinary repositories?
      • Understand the scholarly communication practices of your faculty and departments ( BibApp )
      • Supporting the University Press
      • Educating faculty and, especially, grad students
      • Supporting other publishing activities on campus
      • Making it easier for faculty to publish their works in open access venues
      • The institutional repository is still key
      • but is core infrastructure rather than the focus
    • To enable the rapid dissemination of the research produced on our campuses
