  • Free = free to the user; not free of costsUnrestricted = lowered or eliminated legal and software impedimentsOnline = accessible through the Internet

  • ROAR:http://roar.eprints.org/ROAR is a UK-based tool, based in the University of Southampton, made possible by funding from JISC (used to be the Joint Information Systems Committee, now just known as “jisc”).JISC champions digital technology use in UK higher education. Graph only includes “Research institutional or Departmental” repositories and their record counts in the United States.
  • http://www.clir.org/pubs/reports/pub140/reports/pub140/pub140.pdfMIRACLE Project (Making Institutional Repositories A Collaborative Learning Environment)http://miracle.si.umich.edu/index.htmlFunded by the IMLS (Institute of Museum & Library Services), 2005-2008PO = planning onlyPPT = planning and pilot testingIMP = implementationp. 25In terms of the person leading the IR effort, the library director takes the lead in the planning stage but relinquishes it, in most cases, to one particular staff member or an assistant-associate library director in the PPT and IMP stages (see Table 2.5). If archivists, CIOs, and faculty members from academic units are in the lead, the IR effort is probably in the planning stage. IR committee membership waxes and wanes depending on the particular phase of the IR project (see Figure 2.5). IR committees are most inclusive during the PPT stage and less inclusive during the PO and IMP stages. The likelihood that library staff and assistant or associate library directors are on IR committees increases from stage to stage while people in all other positions are less likely to be members of IR committees as work proceeds.During planning, respondents share responsibility for the IR with the library taking about 40% of the responsibility; archives, central computing, and various academic units, sharing about 12% of the responsibility; and the CIO’s office sharing 6% of the responsibility (see Figure 2.6). When planning and pilot testing, the responsibilities of the library and various academic units increase while others’ responsibilities decrease. The increase for academic units during the PPT phase probably entails early adopters who are contributing to the IR in a pilot test. At implementation, the library shoulders almost all of the responsibility for the IR. Why the library?The library is the intellectual heart of the university. An IR embodies this heart.“At the most basic and fundamental level, an institutional repository is a recognition that the intellectual life and scholarship of our universities will increasingly be represented, documented, and shared in digital form, and that a primary responsibility of our universities is to exercise stewardship over these riches: both to make them available and to preserve them. An institutional repository is the means by which our universities will address this responsibility both to the members of their communities and to the public. It is a new channel for structuring the university's contribution to the broader world, and as such invites policy and cultural reassessment of this relationship.”Clifford Lynch, Executive Director, Coalition for Networked Information2003, Institutional Repositories: Essential Infrastructure for Scholarship in the Digital Age in ARL Bimonthly Reporthttp://www.arl.org/resources/pubs/br/br226/br226ir.shtml
