Medical Institutional Repositories in Libraries (MIRL) Symposium 2022
Save the date for the Medical Institutional Repositories in Libraries (MIRL) Symposium, a free virtual event with a focus on Institutional Repository (IR) management, curation, and promotion in a health sciences environment. The second annual symposium will take place virtually on Thursday, November 17, 2022.
MIRL Symposium 2022 is a platform-neutral conference. Our goal is to gather together IR practitioners and those with an interest in IRs at hospitals, academic medical centers, and other health settings for discussions and sharing of case studies and best practices for digital archiving of institutional content.
The conference will be a mix of presentation types. Potential topics range from the impacts of changing funding agency mandates, challenges and success in innovation, staffing, migration of repositories, and strategies for the continued promotion of open access health sciences content.
Our keynote will feature Dr. Lisa Federer, Data Science and Open Science Librarian at the National Library of Medicine, presenting on “The NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy: Roles and Opportunities for Libraries and Institutional Repositories.”
Please share with anyone who may be interested. Questions can be directed to Steven Moore, Librarian at Sladen Library, Henry Ford Health.
