Federal Investment in Repository Solution Sets New Bar for How Libraries Share
by Richard Huffine
IMLS (Institute of Museum and Library Services) announced recently that it is funding a $2 million grant for three partners (Digital Public Library of America, Stanford University, and DuraSpace) to develop repository solutions, hosting strategies, and methods for the exchange of information for digital library collections. The project will give libraries, museums, and archives of all types and sizes an out-of-the-box open source solution for managing their digital content and exposing what they have to the world. It will build on the work many academic libraries have done to create institutional repositories for their own organizations.
