To develop and implement a system of programs which will assist in educating the Library faculty and staff with a better understanding of open access/author rights, data management, institutional repositories and the proper use of copyright, with the additional goal of providing these programs to the University faculty, staff, researchers and students.
The Committee will develop the plan of action and the appropriate timeline for the implementation of the Institutional Repository. The Committee will develop the definition of the IR (scope), the appropriate policies, procedures, best practices, and marketing materials needed for a successful launch of the Institutional Repository.
To provide the Mississippi State University (MSU) community an online open repository in which to collect research and intellectual output in order to encourage the sharing of information and dissemination of outcomes produced by MSU faculty, researchers, staff, and students. In so doing, the Institutional Repository (IR) will enhance the services and outreach efforts of the MSU Libraries and provide an open portal to share and preserve the history and ongoing research of the MSU community.
