It’s important to get your repository initiative off to a strong start, but you may have questions about how to do so. Whether you are looking to launch or reinvigorate your IR initiative, the resources collected here will provide guidance in building a foundation for success.
If you are interested in more specific aspects of repository management such as marketing and outreach, copyright, or staffing, please see the additional resources we have available in the DC Community Library.
