What Is It? “A university-based institutional repository is a set of services that a university offers to the members of its community for the management and dissemination of digital materials created by the institution and its community members. It is most essentially an organisational commitment to the stewardship of these digital materials, including long-term preservation where appropriate, as well as organisation and access or distribution” - Clifford Lynch http://www.arl.org/resources/pubs/br/br226/br226ir.shtml Adventures in e-resources.
