What are institutional repositories?

Institutional repositories have been showing up in university libraries for the past several years. These online archives promote free and unrestricted access to the research output of the institution. Unlike some disciplinary repositories, institutional repositories contain research by an institution's researchers in many different disciplines. By offering unrestricted access, institutional repositories offer the widest possible sharing of faculty research.
