English abstract

Institutional Repositories give the opportunity to faculties and researchers from universities and research institutes to freely publish and facilitate open access to their publicly funded research activities results. Publishing Sci Tech Information into Institutional Repositories is also a good chance for Scholars and Research Communities to highly increase their visibility in the world and their impact factor and for university libraries is the opportunity to document, organize and preserve the intellectual heritage of the institution at the time it increase its prestige. Since 2001, UPC libraries have developed different repositories: some by their own (DSpace.E-prints UPC, etc...) and one (Theses and dissertations Online) with the Consortium of Academic Libraries of Catalonia, all with thesame aim: to offer to the university community a tool to publish academic works in open access. But one of the most important aspects of all UPC repositories is the fact that are integrated with other information systems of the university: the scientific output information system, the digital campus, etc. The use of OAI-MHP or SOAP and other open sources tools have been very useful for the development of these repositories. In fact, they have also made possible the creation of UPCommons (http://upcommons.upc.edu) wich offers all the UPC documents (thesis, e-prints, articles of UPC publications, etc.) published in open access.
