dc.description.abstractDiscussions around the merit and effectiveness of institutional repositories (IRs) often happen around repository managers and, many times, are often conducted by individuals or broader groups who do not directly work with IRs. These existential conversations occur as repository managers continue to have a vested interest in the ongoing success of the repositories they manage; have genuine policy, copyright, and self-archiving concerns; and have developed robust workflows to manage their institutions’ unique content and needs. The organizers of the first ever Northeast Institutional Repository Day sent out a pre-conference survey to their community members to see if fellow repository practitioners had an interest in attending and/or contributing to such a day and the response was a resounding, “Yes!”. This survey suggests that building a stronger network of repository managers might change the direction of these merit/effectiveness discussions. In the northeast, there is a noticeable lack of any organized regional discussion specifically related to this topic. With other regions across the country holding similar events and with recent national discussions and projects proposing a move away from local repositories -- starting a more regional community of interest of this nature could prove beneficial in the long-term for repository managers and their institutions. At the end of the day, how do we communicate the value of the work we do to external stakeholders, our broader institution, and library administration?
