In the world of scholarly communications, institutional repositories are
power players. An institutional repository is like a web storehouse,
collecting all of an institution’s scholarly works in one location.

A well-run institutional repository can:

   - Offer a permanent platform for a university’s scholarship, collecting
   it all in one perpetual location
   - Allow for improved access to scholarship through search engine indexing
   - Serve the greater academic community by making publications easily and
   freely accessible worldwide, without need for subscriptions or passwords


*​The value of open research archives being acknowledged in the greater
education community*.​
