ARL has released Library Management of Disciplinary Repositories, SPEC Kit 338, which examines the ways in which research libraries are involved in the administration of disciplinary repositories. This SPEC Kit explores the disciplinary scope of the repository, collection policies, funding models, assessment practices, and staffing, among other information.
The SPEC Kit presents case studies of 12 disciplinary repositories that are managed entirely or in part by a library and includes examples of web pages for each repository that describe the repository content, features, policies, organizational structure, and how to submit resources.
