Winchester, MA The Sixth International Open Repositories Conference (OR11) provided food for thought along with ample quantities of southwest-style beef barbeque in what has been called in the OR11 twitterverse "the very sassy Austin Texas."

OR11 slides and abstracts that are available are linked from the Presentations and Authors page on the conference website. OR11 presenters can still send their presentations to
