Market to and Train Users

It is vital that you keep your users engaged with your repository, as well as continuing to recruit new users. As you implement new features and technologies into the repository, be sure to announce these innovations to your users and offer training on the new features.

Use your existing users as a resource to reach out to new users. Offer them opportunities to share their experiences with the repository. A satisfied user is often your best testimonial for the repository. Target new faculty and try to get them on board from the beginning. New faculty orientations are usually offered prior to the start of the academic year, try to secure a spot on the agenda. Ongoing training sessions are also important, as this will allow you to bring in new users on a constant basis.
