Hi all,

I thought this webinar might be of interest to some of the folks on this
list-- please feel free to attend and/or forward!  If you have any
questions, you can contact me at [log in to unmask]  Thanks,


In case you missed the session at CNI, we’d like to share our findings:
with nearly 400 repositories as a sample group, we looked at how the IR
community typically measures progress and compared that with different
ranking systems to see how they matched up. The results suggest that we
need a new, platform-agnostic framework that allows institutions to measure
themselves against their own unique missions and goals.

I’d like to invite you to a webinar that considers what this framework
might look like:

*How am I Doing?  A Framework for Repository Benchmarking*

*Date: *Thursday, July 9th, 2015

*Time: *8am Pacific/ 11am Eastern

*Register here: *

*Date: *Thursday, July 9th, 2015

*Time: *5pm Pacific/ 8am Hong Kong/ 10am Australia

*Register here:*

In this webinar, I will propose a model that moves beyond one-size-fits-all
ranking and instead focuses on benchmarking, as well as share some numbers
from across the community.

I hope you can make it!
