Washington, D.C. During its three years of operations, the institutional repository at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) has gathered and posted over 21,000 documents, which together with its hosted ETD collection make it the third largest institutional repository in the U.S. Usage records also indicate it is one of the busiest, serving up more than 100,000 downloads a month. The repository has also become the cornerstone for a bundle of electronic publishing services developed and provided by the UNL Libraries.
On April 15, the All About Repositories Webinar Series, hosted by Sun Microsystems, the DSpace Foundation, Fedora Commons and SPARC, will feature the first online follow up to the successful 2008 SPARC Digital Repositories Meeting. In response to feedback from participants at the meeting, several online events will be organized that explore meeting topics in more detail and anticipate the program of the 2010 SPARC Digital Repositories Meeting, to be held in Baltimore, November 8 & 9, 2010. Please join Joan Giesecke and Paul Royster from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln on April 15, 2009 at 12:00 ET, 9:00 PT for a presentation on value-added services and a discussion with participants during this one-hour session entitled, “Increasing Use and Content through Creative Service Repository Bundling; the Case at University of Nebraska Lincoln.
