Defining repositories

Crowdsourcing ideas on repository definition, JISC Information Environment Team blog, July 18, 2008.

... Feel free to vote and comment on the ideas that are up there or submit your own if you have something to add. ...

The information that we gather on this site will be used to prepare reports that are designed to guide JISCís future funding plans for repositories. ...
