From Institutional Repository to Personal Workspace

The University of Rochester has transformed its IR into an IR+, “a virtual workspace for academics,” which offers a suite of online tools to support the creation, presentation, and preservation of digital materials.  

In other IR news, JISC has created a guide that:
contains information on a broad range of topics running from the initial idea of a digital repository and the planning process, via detailed sections on repository set up and promotion, through to the maintenance and ongoing management of the repository. The main focus is on institutional repositories and the kit reflects current repository community best practice.
