Southern Miss Institutional Repository Conference

A black banner with white and gold text and two horizontal gold feathers has the following text: 2024 Southern Miss Institutional Repository Conference. April 25 and 26, 2024.

The Southern Miss Institutional Repository Conference (SMIRC) is an opportunity for Institutional Repository (IR) managers to come together and learn about new ideas and strategies that their colleagues are using at their institution to meet the needs of their faculty, staff, and students. It is also a chance for institutions that do not currently have an IR to discover the benefits that an IR can offer in terms of promoting the scholarship and research of their university.

SMIRC consists of speakers, panel discussions, and workshops that will address topics ranging from the basics of IRs to new ideas for longtime IR managers. The presentations will also include speakers who use a variety of different IR platforms, thus allowing attendees to compare the different options that are available to them.

Registration for SMIRC 2024 is now closed. We hope to see you at the conference, or check back in November for more details about SMIRC 2025!
