How It Started/How It’s Going


The Law Repositories Caucus will be hosting an online conference: How It Started/How It’s Going. This conference will be free and open to the public and will be held the week of April 25, 2022.

Back in 2015, the William & Mary Law Library hosted a conference called Law Repositories Shaping the Future. From that conference, the Law Repositories Caucus was born. A few things have happened since then and it seems like a good time to check in.

We are looking for sessions dealing with all aspects of institutional repositories. Some of the types of sessions we’re hoping to see proposals for are:

  • Presentations (20 minutes)
  • Panels (1 hour, multiple related presentations)
  • Roundtable Discussions (1 hour, multiple participants)
  • Lightning Talks (10 minutes)
  • Repository Tours (10 minutes, pre-recorded)

We will be accepting submissions through February 18, 2022, and will be in touch if we have any questions. You will hear from us about whether or not your proposal has been accepted by early March 2022. If you have any questions, please contact
