FSU Libraries' Academic Publishing Team works with members of the FSU community to curate, archive, and provide access to a diverse range of materials related to the missions of scholarship, research, and education at FSU.
The repository showcases the work of individuals, departments, institutes, colleges, and other communities of researchers on campus.
FSU Libraries provide this service free of charge, and we are actively looking for ways to improve it based on the changing publishing needs of our users.
We value your feedback, so contact us with your feedback and recommendations.
a university-based institutional repository is a set of services that a university offers to the members of its community for the management and dissemination of digital materials created by the institution and its community members.
It is most essentially an organizational commitment to the stewardship of these digital materials, including long-term preservation where appropriate, as well as organization and access or distribution." The content of an institutional repository depends on the focus of the institution.Higher education institutions conduct research across multiple disciplines, thus research from a variety of academic subjects.Examples of such digital institutional repositories include the MIT Institutional Repository. It holds and provides access to scholarly research in a particular discipline.Deposit of material in an institutional repository is sometimes mandated by that institution.Some of the main objectives for having an institutional repository are to provide open access to institutional research output by self-archiving in an open access repository, to create global visibility for an institution's scholarly research, and to store and preserve other institutional digital assets, including unpublished or otherwise easily lost ("grey") literature such as theses, working papers or technical reports.If you are an OU student submitting a master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation to the Graduate College via SHAREOK, please follow these instructions.For policies on embargoing your thesis or dissertation, please refer to the Graduate College Thesis/Dissertation Instruction Packet.It is based on data provided by ROAR and the Open DOAR service developed by SHERPA.An institutional repository has been understood as a means to ensure that the published work of scholars is available to the academic community even after increases in subscription fees or budget cuts within libraries.If an institution has decided to invest in a repository numerous resources exist to help librarians and other repository managers frame and answer such questions, including "A Librarian's Process for Building an Institutional Repository", The major institutional repository software platforms use a common open standard called OAI-PMH.This standard makes it not just possible to collect and move research output from one platform to another.
