Institutional Repositories: An Opportunity for CIO Campus Impact
Goodyear, Marilu; Fyffe, Richard
EDUCAUSE Review, v41 n2 p10-11 Mar-Apr 2006
In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, organizations are reexamining their strategies for ensuring the continuity of their core operations. Business continuity has become a focus for higher education institutions nationwide as they watch Gulf Coast administrators who are experiencing the very real problems of recovering from a natural disaster. For colleges and universities, these strategies must include maintaining continuity for the scholarly work of faculty and researchers. The importance of the research enterprise calls for paying significant attention to the stewardship and preservation of the institution's digital assets, particularly those that are unique to the campus. Institutional repositories (IRs) are infrastructure and services that organize and make accessible the intellectual digital output of a single institution. This article describes the benefits gained by the involvement of the central IT organization in the IR program at the University of Kansas. (Contains 4 notes.)
