Online repositories aim to highlight the research and work that is conducted by universities, educational institutions, non profits government agencies, researchers, libraries, corporations and other organizations. The repository allows these organizations to make their scientific content available for public access and dissemination in an efficient manner without burdening local technical staff. The online repository is a storage facility that hosts digital content for the long-term, which can be accessed by anyone with an internet connection.
To store data in the form of a repository, organizations must set up rules and guidelines for how data can be accessible. They also have to determine the level of privacy required. The institution must also establish a method to check the integrity of the data and check that it is not infringing on any copyrights. The online repository should also be equipped with tools and technology that perform functions like data aggregation, indexing, searchability, and linking.
According to the report of Henderson (2008) and Matkin (2002) according to the report by Matkin (2002) and Henderson (2008), the motivation behind the creation of the faculty research repository is mainly related to sharing, accessibility and discovery of unique collections as well as LOs and projects that are created within the university. A faculty repository should be able to establish a strong marketing strategy to make the community aware of its benefits and existence.
There are many advantages to the online repository of a faculty member. The information can be reused or shared with other researchers, and used for teaching or learning. This will reduce the costs in the future. The information is available at any time because it is stored in the repository, thereby saving time and effort. The work is also freely accessible, which enhances its visibility and reputation.
