Abstract

EDINA has been funded to undertake a variety of repository-related development activities to enhance and support access to scholarly and learning objects in the UK. JORUM is a national learning object repository for sharing and repurposing educational materials. The purpose of the Depot is to ensure that all UK academics can enjoy the benefits of Open Access for their peerreviewed post-prints by providing a repository for the interim period before every university has such repository provision. GRADE has been investigating and reporting on the technical and cultural issues around the reuse of geospatial data in the context of media-centric, informal and institutional repositories. With the DataShare project, by supporting academics who wish to share datasets on which written research outputs are based, a network of institution-based data repositories will develop a niche model for deposit of ‘orphaned datasets’ currently filled neither by centralised subject-domain data archives nor institutional repositories.
