Faculty works (e.g. journal articles, conference proceedings) in institutional repositories (IRs) differ from other collections due to their inclination for duplication on other platforms: publisher websites, preprint servers, other IRs, etc. This characteristic can create interesting and different approaches to planning, populating, and promoting faculty works collections. Come to this roundtable discussion to talk about current and future practices related to faculty works in IRs. Share your current policies, procedures, and outreach methods. Brainstorm the ideal future for faculty works collections. And ultimately, consider possible changes to your current practices to make that future into a reality.
