Repository policies

Abstract:

This chapter examines the importance of creating a policy infrastructure for an institutional repository. A comprehensive policy framework requires the creation of a collection management policy, deposit agreements, terms-of-use policies, and policies to ensure compliance with applicable laws, such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The chapter discusses each of these, with special attention to defining the various relationships between content creators, end users, and the repository’s institution.
