Carleton Library goes digital

Never mind the challenge of finding physical space for library holdings, digital materials have also become increasingly difficult to manage and store. It’s why Carleton’s MacOdrum Library is participating in a pilot project to establish a repository of Carleton digital materials.

The project is part of the larger Institutional Repositories (IR) Pilot Project being run by the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL). IRs are digital repositories that collect, preserve, and make accessible intellectual output in the form of images, technical reports and conference papers, to name but a few examples. Rather than being discipline-based, IRs will represent a wide range of research output produced by one institution.

Universities are increasingly building repositories as a way to manage and provide Internet access to digital materials submitted by faculty. The goal of the project is to have a highly accessible number of interconnected archives of Canadian scholarly digital publications. Carleton’s pilot repository can be found at:
