The Medical Institutional Repositories in Libraries (MIRL) Symposium focuses on Institutional Repository (IR) management, curation, and promotion in a health sciences environment. MIRL is a platform-neutral conference. Our goal is to gather together IR practitioners and those with an interest in IRs at hospitals, academic medical centers, and other health settings for discussions and sharing of case studies and best practices for digital archiving of institutional content.

The Medical Institutional Repositories in Libraries (MIRL) Symposium planning committee would like to thank all of the presenters and attendees who participated in the 2021, 2022, and 2023 symposia!

Save the date for the 4th annual MIRL Symposium, held on November 21, 2024! Time to be determined. Registration will open on September 23, 2024.

MIRL is the proud recipient of the 2023 Jean Williams Sayre Innovation Award from the Midwest Chapter of MLA.
