Developing an Institutional Repository: an insider's look at the University of Utah IR
The University of Utah libraries (J. Willard Marriott Library, S.J. Quinney Law Library and Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library) have embarked on a campus-wide project to develop an institutional repository. In response to widespread use of the Web and readily available--albeit somewhat new and untested--digital technologies, librarians determined that the University of Utah needed a digital collection to truly represent the scholarly creations of its faculty, researchers and students. This essay focuses on the initial stage of the project and also offers reflections on its current status as well as possibilities for the future.
