Abstract

Librarians are increasingly being called upon to help academics justify their existence and bring in research income, with the digital repository. Librarians are being asked to do manage digital repositories of academic research and are best placed to do this. Managers of repositories are using tools available to them to visualise various activities relating to the repository to make it more visible and a better promotion for the activities of the institution whose research is being displayed. Repositories are being used in research assessment exercises like the UK Research Excellence Framework.
