Saving the cancelled conference: Supporting conferences and events with your IR

Presented by

Elisabeth Shook and Kimberly Holling, Boise State University

About this talk

With conferences and events cancelled left and right, libraries closing, and distance learning in place, virtual meetings and classes are the new status quo for many institutions. The conference schedule was already prepared. Your faculty had their paper accepted, your students had their posters ready to present, and now, how to help? On April 22, join Elisabeth Shook and Kimberly Holling of Boise State University as they describe how they're using the institutional repository to continue promoting research and scholarship during a time when online access is more important than ever. Attendees will come away with ideas for continuing or expanding IR services, including: • Best practices for supporting conferences in the IR, including getting started quickly • The benefits of hosting conference materials on the IR • Strategies to reach faculty and students during a time of distance learning • New materials to support on the IR as institutions find a new status quo
