At the 2012 Indiana State Fair, e-Pubs Repository Specialist David Scherer was on hand to introduce Purdue's institutional repository to fairgoers and explain how the research made openly available in the IR benefits the state's citizens. In addition to showing off the repository on an iPad, David handed out a few great promotional items: a postcard that emphasizes the quantitative impact of the repository, and a coaster that showcases the partnership between Purdue e-Pubs and the Purdue University Press.
