American Library Association Annual Conference
Student research is an untapped commodity. A survey of 238 Institutional Repositories in 2013 indicated that only 38% collect student research other than theses and dissertations.

And, what are the obstacles preventing more robust collection of student research? Includes breakdown of repositories by platform.
