U of Minnesota launches an IR

Yesterday the University of Minnesota officially launched its institutional repository, the University Digital Conservancy.  (Thanks to UM’s Transforming Scholarly Communication blog.)

The UDC was online as early as last June, when Minnesota librarians linked to it while explaining Minnesota’s commitment to the CIC Author Addendum.  Among the services provided by the UDC will be “Expert consultation on copyright, digital formats, and authors' rights.”
