Building an institutional repository at a liberal arts college

Subject

Institutional repositories; Library cooperation

Description

Institutional repositories (IRs) are being used increasingly as infrastructures for self-created digital collections at large academic and research libraries. This paper demonstrates how a small liberal arts college can build an institutional repository (IR) in collaboration with an appropriate consortium. It also examines IR emerging issues in metadata creation and preservation, as well as IR promotion, and collaboration across departments in the college community through the Senior Capstone Experience (SCE) project. Lessons learned from the project and possible solutions proposed by the author are highlighted.
