Research and Markets: Research and Markets: The International Survey of Institutional Digital Repositories Available Now


(M2 PressWIRE Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)
RDATE:16112007

Dublin - Research and Markets
(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c74380) has announced the
addition of The International Survey of Institutional Digital
Repositories to their offering

Information science studies focus on the purchasing behavior and
management practices of major information consumers. Major scientific,
technical, legal, medical, corporate and academic libraries use our
reports as benchmarking tools. Major vendors/producers of content and
content technology development tools use our studies to grasp market
trends and pinpoint opportunities.

The study presents data from 56 institutional digital repositories from
eleven countries, including the USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, South
Africa, India, Turkey and other countries. The 121-page study presents
more than 200 tables of data and commentary and is based on data from
higher education libraries and other institutions involved in
institutional digital repository development.

In more than 300 tables and associated commentary the report describes
norms and benchmarks for budgets, software use, manpower needs and
deployment, financing, usage, marketing and other facets of the
managment of international digital repositories.

The report helps to answer questions such as: who contributes to the
repositories and on what terms? Who uses the repositories? What do they
contain and how fast are they growing, in terms of content and end use?
What measures have repositories used to gain faculty and other
researcher participation? How successful have these methods been? How
has the repository been marketed and cataloged? What has been the
financial impact? Data is broken out by size and type of institution
for easier benchmarking.
