Total 84 Institutional Repositories in India have been analyzed based on selected study criteria like type of IR, the present status of IR, software used for repositories, total no of items and ETD available in IR, subject wise analysis, language-wise analysis, issues, and barriers in developing IRs/ETDs in India.
