Quick Guide to Institutional Repositories

Bailey, Jr., Charles W. Institutional Repositories, Tout de Suite (2008). At:

If you've been looking for a good, introductory bibliography on institutional repositories, this is it. In 10 pages, Bailey provides sources that can answer questions related to what institutional repositories are, why institutions might want one, what self-archiving is, author's rights, software for implementing repositories, issues related to obtaining repository deposits, general information on how to find repositories, as well as suggestions for further reading. Highly recommended for the person just getting into repositories or for those occasions where you need to bring someone up to speed quickly.
