Vi segnalo link e abstract del Census of Insitutional repositories in the
US. MIRACLE project research findings sul sito del CLIR:


In this report, the authors describe results of a nationwide census of
institutional repositories in U.S. academic institutions. The census is
one of several activities of the MIRACLE Project, an IMLS-funded research
program based at the University of Michigan.

A considerable portion of the scholarly record is born digital, and some
scholarship is produced in digital formats that have no physical,
in-the-hand counterparts. The proliferation of digital scholarship raises
serious and pressing issues about how to organize, access, and preserve it
in perpetuity. The response of academic institutions has been to build and
deploy institutional repositories (IRs) to manage the digital scholarship
their learning communities produce

Buona lettura e buon lavoro a tutti
