Abstract

Purpose - The purpose of the paper is to introduce SHERPA-LEAP, a model for the consortial development, population and support of e-prints repositories. Design/methodology/approach - The organisational and technical structures of the consortium are described, including a brief summary of central and local resource responsibilities. Some positive and negative aspects of a consortial approach to institutional repository development, and of the SHERPA-LEAP model in particular, are identified. Outstanding issues and future plans for the consortium are outlined. Findings - SHERPA-LEAP is shown to be succeeding in its aims of developing and supporting e-prints repositories within the federal University of London. Some lessons learned from the SHERPA-LEAP approach are identified, but the SHERPA-LEAP consortial model is found to have been mostly beneficial to the participating institutions. In particular, the networking and experience-sharing opportunities which any consortial solution will facilitate are highly-valued by the SHERPA-LEAP partners. Originality/value - The paper is intended to help to inform the decision making of institutions and consortia, which are considering consortial solutions to the establishment, and maintenance of institutional repositories.
