Institutional Repository Funding Confirmed for Phase Two

July 7, 2015

BC ELN is pleased to announce that the Ministry of Advanced Education (AVED) has confirmed $50,000 in funding for phase two of the BC Institutional Repository Network.

The letter from AVED confirms that funding will support the second year of the project, which will include continued development of the institutional repositories, development of a discovery layer, and establishment of a plan for project sustainability.

Work on the IR Network is progressing full steam ahead through the summer months. The Implementation Working Group and Advisory Committee continue to meet to ensure project goals are being met. Developments on the horizon include a new IR Network name and logo, a website, and content deposited in early adopter sites by this fall.
