The Research Library's Role in Digital Repository Services: Final Report of the ARL Digital Repository Issues Task Force

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Digital Repository Issues Task Force was charged "to evaluate trends, contextualize repository activities among ARL libraries, and recommend leadership roles and activities for ARL." Institutional repositories are a common form of repository, but this report focuses more broadly on the full range of repositories. At the same time, it concentrates on repository services rather than repository technologies or content.
