Abstract

Building partnerships with community-oriented research centers and departments is one of the best ways to develop an institutional repository into a valued community resource. In this webinar, Kathleen Spring (Collections Management Librarian) and Brenda DeVore Marshall (Professor of Theatre and Communication Arts) share how they're using the institutional repository at Linfield College to support the Linfield Center for the Northwest, the Pacific City Arts Association, and the Pacific City Dorymen's Association. By publishing oral histories, archival materials, and research generated through these centers, the repository plays a central role in a project that includes student internships, physical exhibits, and even an original theatrical production.
