Abstract:In the last decade, a growing body of the scholarly information and instructional materials produced by universities existed primarily in digital format. New digital technologies increased the productivity of scholars. The purpose of an Institutional repository (IR) is to manage their scholarly work in ways that facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration, and accelerate the pace of discovery and innovation. Academic institutions have increasingly recognized that IR is an essential infrastructure of scholarly dissemination. The goal of IR is essentially to collect, preserve, and make persistently accessible a variety of scholarly materials. This paper explores digital curation activities that enhance the visibility of IR in an ever-changing digital landscape.
