English abstract

Institutional repositories have become an important means of publishing, disseminating, and preserving the digital information of organisations. The majority of them run on open software tools. Institutional repository projects are being carried out following an evaluation of the software’s features. Nevertheless, the evaluations to date have been comparative, focussing on the features offered by each tool, rather than on other factors. In order to overcome this limitation, this work analyses the different published models for evaluating institutional repository software, studies the approach adopted in each case, and proposes a model. This model is oriented toward the study and definition of informational–documental processes, the users, the characteristics of the collections, and the context of the project in which it is framed.

Spanish abstract

Los repositorios institucionales se han convertido en la principal forma de publicar, preservar y difundir la información digital de las organizaciones. La mayoría de ellos están soportados por software libre, elegidos tras la evaluación de sus prestaciones. Sin embargo, los análisis que se han realizado han sido comparativos, atendiendo a las funciones que ofrecen, antes que a otros factores. Para superar esta limitación, este trabajo analiza los diferentes modelos publicados de evaluación de software para repositorios institucionales, estudia los enfoques adoptados y propone un modelo orientado a la definición de procesos informativo–documentales, a la comunidad de usuarios, a las características de las colecciones, y al contexto del proyecto en el que se enmarcan.
