In Spring 2020, higher education institutions began implementing COVID-related precautions. While course delivery was most influenced by a variety of urgent decisions, also affected were events that were originally (and traditionally) scheduled to take place in-person that semester. While many events were cancelled outright, some were rescheduled or shifted online. At my institution, stakeholders decided to transition the popular annual student research symposium to an online event hosted by the institutional repository. This presentation will provide details of a successful collaboration between the library's institutional repository manager and symposium coordinators in the Graduate School. The presentation will cover workflows, team member responsibilities, technological considerations, and what stakeholders plan to change for the 2021 online symposium.
