I would like to propose a session discussing Bepress. University of Louisiana at Lafayette is proposing to adopt and implement Bepress for our institutional repository. The repository will be a space for faculty and students to post and organize their work (articles, projects, electronic theses etc.) so they can be made available on a global scale. The benefits of a digital repository include efficient access and visibility of work, providing a central home for our scholarship, and increasing the value of the University.
I would like to introduce Bepress to the group and explain how we feel this will help achieve our goals. I would also like to open the discussion up and have the group provide their input and what they would like to see in our institutional repository.
