The National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, Wales, SY23 3BU

Wednesday 18 February 2009

Programme | Booking Form


Policies are integral to the creation and development of any successful IR. A well-thought-out approach to creating and developing policy documents creates a firm base on which to build an IR.

Strong policies -

  • reflect the aims of the IR within the institution
  • integrate the repository into the institution
  • engage senior management

Policies also guide IR staff in areas such as

  • IPR/copyright
  • takedown strategy
  • other of the more practical aspects of running an IR

This day aims to facilitate the sharing of information on policy. The first part of the day will showcase many different approaches to policy from a wide spectrum of institutions.

The second part of the day will involve a led workshop on the creating and ongoing development of IR policy.

Delegates are welcome to bring along examples of policy documents or specific questions for use in the workshop session.

There will also be time in the day to network with other IR staff and with the speakers.
