Abstract:Much has been written about the difficulties of getting staff and
students to contribute to an Institutional Repository (IR). The most
difficult objections of staff to deal with are lack of time, and uncertainty
about the benefits. We report on the measures that we have
taken when building an IR to address those objections, indicating
which were successful and which failed. We then propose a set of
parameters to capture the quality, cost, and benefits of maintaining
an IR in a quantitative manner, using the parameters to compare
three IR. Our proposal is a first step towards a more objective approach
towards evaluating IR.
