Presentation description 

In this webinar, Christopher Clarke will share some of the insights gained from a study conducted in collaboration with Dr. Hak Joon Kim on the deployment of institutional repositories in academic institutions in Connecticut. While past studies have concentrated on growth in the total number of repositories, none have looked at how the number of repositories in a particular region compares to those institutions without a repository. The primary purposes of this study were to find out how many colleges and universities in Connecticut have developed institutional repositories and how they have used these institutional repositories.
