Shreeves Lessons Learned and Looking Forward

  1. 1. Lessons  learned  & Looking  forward Sarah  L.  Shreeves Associate  Dean  for  Digital  Strategies University  of  Miami
  2. 2. • Start  with  my  own  history  with  IRs
  3. 3. Lesson  1:   IRs  and  IR  managers  – in  general  – were  left  to  find  their  own  way.  Of  course,   we  weren’t  going  to  make  much  of  a  dent  in  green  OA.  Staffing  and  support   can  make  an  enormous  difference  in  the  success  of  an  IR,  but  IRs  in  and  of   themselves  are  not  going  to  change  the  direction  of  OA.  (we  had  a  chance  and  we  lost  it   mostly)
  4. 4.

Lesson  3: IRs  can  be  vital  parts  of  the  university  and  should  solve  problems  for  our  faculty   and  students.  How  can  your  IR  be  part  of  undergraduate  research  and  teaching?  Can   you  offer  DOIs  to  researchers  in  need  of  one?  How  flexible  are  you?
