Overview for Digital Institutional Repositories: Case Studies
There is a growing interest among academic institutions in collecting, preserving and creating value-added services from digital content produced in teaching and research. Institutional repositories are a new concept for collecting, managing, disseminating and preserving scholarly works created by faculty and students in individual universities and colleges. In a developing country like India where there are many academic and research organizations and with the shortage of resource materials to these organizations, it is imperative that the available materials be preserved and made visible to all professionals in various streams of academic or research areas. The book is a collection of articles pertaining to the experiences of various institutions and is divided into three sections, namely Introduction, Academic Institutions and Research Organizations. Introductory part gives a glimpse of various digital institutional repositories in India, talks about the growing need of digitization of scholarly materials and setting up of these repositories. The second and third sections cover various digital repositories set up by different academic and research organizations.
