The Faculty Publications Database was initiated by the Touro College Libraries in 2009, and eventually blossomed to include over 7,000 citation entries, an annual printed book, and a yearly faculty appreciation event. When the transition to an institutional repository was made, many of the workflows for obtaining submissions and getting buy-in from faculty and administration were already in place, but there were some new issues to face. This presentation will discuss the transition from this database to the institutional repository, new workflows, how the repository is being marketed, and what remains the same after the switch.
