*COAR Launches Strategic Initiative to Align Repository Networks*

At a meeting in March 2014, several major repository networks agreed to
work together to further align their activities. The final report from this
meeting is now available on the COAR website.

As research becomes increasingly global, it is critical to create
infrastructure that can connect across geographic boundaries. At the
meeting, convened by the Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR),
delegates from Australia, Canada, China, Europe, Latin America and the
United States agreed on a common vision and the shared principles of
openness, sustainability, interoperability and diversity. In addition,
participants identified a number of priority areas in which they will begin
working together in terms of technical interoperability, policies and
services.

Work on the priority areas will begin immediately. COAR has established a
Strategic Committee for Aligning Repository Networks, which will act as a
forum for ongoing exchange between repository networks and to identify
priorities. COAR is also developing practical strategies for the adoption
of recommendations by repository networks and aims to work closely with all
relevant stakeholders.

The full report of the meeting is available here:
