Peter Murray-Rust on problems with Institutional Repositories

Peter Murray-Rust has been posting to his blog with some awkward questions for those of us involved in institutional repositories. His basic point is that institutional repositories only make sense for organisational reasons, and not for any other, and that researchers search by discipline, not at an institutional level.

His most recent post, Criteria for Successful Repositories,¬†contains some salutary lessons for IR people, and while I’m not sure I agree with all of his points, it certainly is providing food for thought.
