Abstract

This briefing paper captures the key findings and recommendations of a study commissioned by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) on aspects of the strategic commitment of institutions to repository sustainability.1 This project, labelled EMBRACE (EMBedding Repositories And Consortial Enhancement) is aimed at enhancing the functionality, inter-operability and extensibility of the SHERPA-LEAP repository service, which currently supports the repositories of thirteen University of London institutions. This briefing paper aims to clarify the different motivations to use and invest in digital repositories, and potential ways to address the challenges to embedding these repositories in institutional strategy and daily operation are highlighted. It is designed for use by Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), who are encouraged to adapt the recommendations to their specific context.
