  • Select for Success: Key Principles in Assessing Repository Models Oya Y. Rieger D-Lib Magazine, Vol. 13, No. 7/8. (July 2007). [Link]

"Many cultural and educational institutions are in the process of selecting or developing repositories to support a wide range of digital curation activities, including content management, submission, ingest, archiving, publishing, discovery, access, and preservation. In addition, there is an increasing emphasis on deploying systems that support content re-purposing and delivery of a wide range of web services. This article offers strategies to match specific institutional requirements with repository system features and functionalities. The repository model selection process involves several essential stages including stakeholder analysis, needs assessment, service definition, and identification of use cases and governance-related matters. Also, it is essential to conduct a thorough resource requirements analysis to ensure the sustainability of development, management, marketing, and assessment activities. Equally important is taking into consideration the existing and evolving work culture and practices of repository stakeholders. The ultimate success of a repository implementation is often determined by how well it supports organizational procedures, policies, practices, and collaborations."
