Good Afternoon,

Institutional repository managers from libraries at the University of
Massachusetts, University of Florida, University of North Texas and Texas
A&M University, are collaborating to start the IR Managers Forum. This
forum is specifically designed to support information sharing among
institutional repository managers, regardless of software platform,
institutional setting, or technical expertise.

As IR managers, we often deal with common problems and stand to benefit
from understanding how our colleagues approach these issues. Conversations
have the potential to help individual managers develop their repository
policies, outreach, workflows, and best practices. They can also aid in
cross-platform comparisons to identify software features and limitations,
larger trends in institutional repositories, and future directions.
