Abstract

Last year, the William & Mary law library uploaded 5,000 documents to their institutional repository in little over 3 months. The documents include the complete archives of five law reviews, spanning more than 50 years of scholarly publications. Over the last year, these collections have garnered more than 400,000 downloads from a global audience.

Lauren Seney and Linda Tesar, who led the effort to archive W&M’s law reviews, share their experiences in this webinar. Topics include: essential components, best practices, and strategies for archiving law reviews online.
