Institutional Repositories reach far outside the institutions that create them, requiring IR managers to have an understanding of areas such as advocacy and cultural change, and the ability to liaise with many external parties.

This on-day event will offer perspectives from:

  • a publisher
  • an author
  • a funder

...and look at the question of Open Access and other related issues. The focus will be on advocacy and understanding the changes brought about by the IR. The aim is to enable better communications between IR staff and external parties. This will be done through a mixture of case studies and workshop sessions. There will also be time in the day to network with other IR staff and with the speakers.

The event will take place at the York St. John University, Lord Mayor's Walk, York YO31 7EX. A map and travel information will be available from the event wiki at


Online booking is available. There is no charge to attend the event but an administration fee of £50 will be charged for a "no-show" (replacement delegates will be accepted). Numbers are limited therefore preference will be given to participants who are (or were) part of a JISC SUE project
