New Content in Digital Repositories: The changing research landscape
Universities are under pressure to make their research output more accessible, both from government funding and policy guidelines. Academic libraries have traditionally played an important role by exposing research output through a predominantly institution-based digital repository, with a focus on storing published works. New publishing paradigms are emerging today, with a focus on research data, huge volumes of which are being generated globally. Repositories are the natural home for managing, storing and describing institutional research data. New Content in Digital Repositories explores the new types of content being stored in institutional repositories with a focus on research data, creative works, and the interesting challenges they pose in areas such as metadata, persistent identifiers, and software and exchange protocols.
