Guidelines for developing Institutional Repository

THIS WAS BLOG BY Shamprasad Pujar, Mumbai, India. Commonwealth Professional Fellow-2008 at University of Sussex, UK.

I think, it is still a challenge for many Library and Information Science (LIS) professionals to understand the nuances of digital library or institutional repository (IR) development using open source software like DSpace. They can now have a sigh of relief as Stellenbosch University library has made available ‘IR-Guide‘ , which provides step-by-step practical guidelines in developing an IR targeting academic institutes situated in developing countries. This useful document has been written by Mr Hilton Gibson, System Administrator at Stellenbosch University Library Services, Stellenbosch, South Africa. I am sure this guide will be of much use to LIS professionals.

The full text of the guide is available at: http://scholar.sun.ac.za/handle/10019.1/79321
