Abstract

Open access repositories are springing up globally at academic institutions, allowing staff and students to share research findings effectively. There are many flavors of Institutional Repositories (IRs) and many options for building support and recruiting content. Existing content in IRs are sometimes available through an internet search facility or from secondary service providers through harvesting and subject portals. Latin America provides excellent examples that illustrate the challenges and great opportunities ahead. This is a presentation made at the 2007: SALALM LII conference titled "Borders: Obsession, Obstacle, Open Door?" at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM
