A growing proportion of an institution's output and assets is digital in format (eg, data sets, documents, multimedia objects). Digital repositories are becoming a critical part of an institution's information infrastructure to ensure the preservation and ongoing access to these digital objects. Over and above a mere software system, the digital repository represents the institution's responsibility for the long term stewardship of its digital assets. The workshops will provide a general background to digital repositories as well as a practical walk-through of a particular repository system. The workshops will also cover the essential issues involved in establishing a repository service, including: - Planning and management of a repository service - Involving your community - Criteria for choosing repository software - Spectrum of services - Sustainability guidelines and issues - Case study demonstrations
