Selecting repository software

Abstract:

In the changing research environment, it may be necessary either to re-evaluate a current digital repository solution to assess its suitability or to implement a brand new system. This chapter outlines potential functionality which should be assessed in light of the new types of content plus the impact of new technologies. Open-source versus commercial solutions are discussed. Consideration should be given to collaborative or externally hosted options. Institutions may also wish to evaluate the benefits of undertaking a benchmarking exercise, using one of the major repository certification tools.
