Of possible interest to members of this list:
The Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR) announces the publication 
of the report, Incentives, Integration, and Mediation: Sustainable Practices 
for Populating 
Repositories<>. The report profiles a variety of successful practices for populating repositories collected from around the world.
There is an active, thriving community of open access repositories worldwide 
and their visibility is rising as funding agencies and governments implement 
open access policies. Still,  repositories must continue to adopt strategies 
that demonstrate their value to the wider research community. The aim of this 
report is to assist the global repository community in implementing sustainable 
methods for recruiting content. The profiles were gathered from organizations 
across the globe, and represent a mixture of approaches involving the 
introduction of incentives/mandates; integration of the repository with other 
institutional services; and mediation of the deposit process. The practices 
reflect a tradition of innovation and openness in the repository community, and 
are characterized by creative approaches to staffing, imaginative software 
developments, and adoption of novel policies.
The report will also be available soon in Spanish.
COAR is a young, fast growing association of repository initiatives with a 
membership of over 100 institutions worldwide from 35 countries and 4 
continents. Its mission is to enhance the visibility and application of 
research outputs through a global network of open access digital repositories.
