Description/Abstract

The key to a successful repository is sustained deposits, and the key to sustained deposits is community engagement. This paper looks at deposit profiles automatically generated from OAI harvesting information and argues that repositories characterised by occasional large-volume deposits are a sign of a failure to embed in institutional processes. The ideal profile for a successful repository is discussed, and a new service that ranks repositories based on these criteria is implemented.
