  • Many people don’t want to deposit directly through a repository Why? No time Don’t understand deposit process Deposit process perceived as too daunting!
  • One click deposit, into repository publication workflow Full control on what being deposited (as opposed to depositing everything that has been unread into a repository – could be quite dangerous!!) Friendly suggestion on what could be deposited – alert that suggests that attached item could be candidate for a repository deposit, work as an inbox analysis tool Automatic metadata extraction Optional manual metadata input Leeds to better m/d Depends on amount of detail input (may require specific plug-in for specific repository) But adds more 'clicks' to the deposit process
