Abstract

The University of Georgia law library has one of the most long standing and successful law repositories in the world. With the leadership of Carol Watson, DigitalCommons@University of Georgia School of Law regularly delivers a wide and impressive range of open access legal scholarship to a global audience.

They are not alone. Almost 30 law schools have followed their lead and established their own law-specific repositories in the past 3 years. As law repositories grow exponentially, more and more law libraries are looking for guidance – to make the case, to plan smartly, to staff efficiently, and most of all, to ensure and increase buy in every year.

In this webinar, Carol explores strategies for creating and developing an institutional repository at a law school, including building repository content beyond faculty scholarship.
