Open Repositories. Repositories increasingly play a pivotal role in the emerging information landscape. Through a format that blends open user group meetings for DSpace, Fedora, and Eprints, followed by general conference sessions that cover cross-cutting and overarching issues, Open Repositories attempts to create opportunities to explore the challenges faced by user communities and others in today’s world.

The many repository platforms available today are changing the nature of scholarly communication. Institutions such as universities, research laboratories, publishers, libraries, and commercial organizations are creating innovative repository-based systems that address the entire lifecycle of information — from supporting the creation and management of digital content, to enabling use, re-use, and interconnection of information, to ultimately ensuring long-term preservation and archiving.

Bob Schatz presented a very well-received workshop entitled Institutional Repositories and the Open Repository Solution.
