English abstract

An institutional repository is a digital asset management system that allows the deposit and subsequent distribution of digital files over the internet. The Learning Center of Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences (HIOA) have an institutional repository named ODA (Open Digital Archives) for peer-reviewed publications and master theses. The Learning center of HIOA feels the necessity of archiving non-peer reviewed materials and other teaching and learning materials that the faculty members have and do not fall with the submission policy of ODA. At this stage, the Learning center proposed for the other institutional repository named ‘Fagarkivet’ to be initiated by non-peer reviewed materials of HIOA with the DSpace open source software. A number of faculty members have been contacted through e-mail; semi-structured face-to-face interviews have been conducted with seven faculty members of four different departments. This report identifies the potentiality of the proposed institutional repository. It categorizes different types of materials that the faculty members like to put in the repository, the required file format that should be adapted and necessary metadata fields. This report also includes the opinions of faculty members, possible obstacles and promotional issues of the same. It is evident that a centralized system is essential to preserve non-reviewed intellectual output, reuse and share the same with the concerned community. It is found that the proposed institutional repository is welcome by the faculty members and that will directly contribute to knowledge preservation of HIOA.
