Lightning Talk

Program Description

A quick overview of Arca, a consortially-operated multisite Islandora repository with 12 member sites (and growing). The talk outlines how a consortial repository works, including governance, consortial planning and management, challenges of meeting the needs of multiple very different kinds of members, our relationship with our vendor, and how much it costs (and how costs are shared). It will also touch on challenges related to storage, including restricted options due to Canadian privacy legislation.

See the repositories as they grow at http://arcabc.ca.
