Experts and advocates examine the state of the art in digital repositories in a new series of videos now freely available online from the Scholarly Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC). Also, by popular demand, SPARC has announced it will host the third SPARC Digital Repositories Meeting on November 8 & 9, 2010, in Baltimore, Maryland.
The video series was taped at the November 2008 SPARC repositories meeting, and underscores the central role of repositories across library services. Particular emphasis is placed on the added value they contribute to the institution and on the importance of funding repository development even in lean economic times.
