Institutional repository

From LISWiki
(Redirected from Institutional repositories)
Jump to: navigation, search

Many libraries are undertaking efforts to archive the intellectual output of their parent organization in a designated repository.

This has the benefits of preserving materials and usually providing open access to them. Such projects require devotion to tasks from choosing software and systems to obtaining provenance to enact policies and procedures.

There may also be a real or perceived overlap with existing efforts. The OCLC Digital Archive, for example, essentially replicates the services provided by the Internet Archive.
