Evolution of a Digital Repository: One Institution's Experience
Owen, Terry M.
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v23 n2 p142-149 2011
In this article, the development of a digital repository is examined, specifically how the focus on acquiring content for the repository has transitioned from faculty-published research to include the gray literature produced by the research centers on campus, including unpublished technical reports and undergraduate research from honors programs. This material has the benefit of fewer copyright restrictions, making acquisition much less problematic. Inclusion in the repository increases the creditability of the research center and provides wider distribution of this often under-recognized research. (Contains 2 figures.)
