  9. 9. More  than  just  soRware/hardware…   “an  ins<tu<onal  repository  is  a  set  of  services  that  an   educa<onal  organisa<on  offers  to  the  members  of  its   community  for  the  management  and  dissemina<on  of   digital  materials  created  by  the  ins<tu<on  and  its   community  members.  It  is  most  essen<ally  an   organiza<onal  commitment  to  the  stewardship  of  these   digital  materials,  including  long-­‐term  preserva<on   where  appropriate,  as  well  as  organiza<on  and  access   or  distribu<on.  …..  An  ins<tu<onal  repository  is  not   simply  a  fixed  set  of  soJware  and  hardware.”   Clifford  Lynch.  'InsJtuJonal  repositories  :  essenJal  infrastructure  for  scholarship  in  the   digital  age'.  ARL  Bimonthly  Report,  February  2003   hYp://www.arl.org/newsltr/226/ir.html   MM

  12. 12. Open  Source   •  Is  not  really  ‘free’   •  Requires  investment,  Jme,  money,  resources
