Note to repository managers: JISC has just released a great resource for planning and managing digital repositories called the Digital Repositories InfoKit. It’s meant to be a “practical ‘how-to’ guide to setting up and running digital repositories.”
The InfoKit includes everything from background information on repositories and issues like Open Access and scholarly communication to planning, technical, and management considerations. The site provides a lucid, comprehensive survey that should prove useful to everybody who works with repositories, but especially those just getting started with their institutional repositories.
Be sure to check it out. And while you’re there, take a look at all the other information resources JISC offers on information and learning technologies.
