Save the Date for Open Repositories 2017

The Open Repositories (OR) Steering Committee in conjunction with the 
University of Queensland (UQ), Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and 
Griffith University are delighted to inform you that Brisbane will host the 
annual Open Repositories 2017 Conference.

It's exciting to have Open Repositories return to Australia, where it all began 
in 2006.

The University of Queensland (UQ), Queensland University of Technology (QUT) 
and Griffith University welcomed today’s announcement that Brisbane will host 
the International Open Repositories Conference 26-30 June 
2017<http://or2017.net/> at the Hilton Brisbane.

The annual Open Repositories Conference brings together users and developers of 
open digital repository platforms from higher education, government, galleries, 
libraries, archives and museums. The Conference provides an interactive forum 
for delegates from around the world to come together and explore the global 
challenges and opportunities facing libraries and the broader scholarly 
information landscape.

“There has never been a more exciting time for Australia to host this 
Conference as the issues around scholarly information, such as publishing and 
open access, directly play into Australia’s National Innovation and Science 
Agenda. Australia’s researchers and scholars are producing phenomenal work yet 
most of this isn’t being realised as commercial success due to systemic 
barriers, such as how research data is stored and accessed”, said Linda 
O’Brien, Pro Vice Chancellor, Information Services at Griffith University in 
response to the news of the successful bid.

Ms O’Brien continued. “This announcement confirms what we already know - 
Australian universities are amongst the most innovative around the world and 
that Brisbane is a world-class conference destination.”

Open Repositories 2017 will attract around 400 delegates and bring an estimated 
$1 million to the Queensland economy.
