Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


There is great momentum in the movement to build institutional repositories. The opportunity they give to showcase the outputs of the institution in exciting new ways is now being taken seriously in many countries. In the TARDis project at the University of Southampton in the UK we explored the complex intersection of the institutional repository and the Open Access movement as we developed the framework for a research repository grounded in the needs of the institution. This repository will grow to represent the diverse cultures of a large multidisciplinary university. We now examine the practical issues and preliminary steps taken, in conjunction with the EPrints software, as we add a new “quality” interaction with research assessment.
