Abstract:
The institutional repository became popular solutions to Capture, Preserve and Share university intellectual outputs; it had a great value on advancing scholarly communication, for both published materials such as peer reviewed article, conference paper where it is considered as an additional dissemination channel or for the best scenario as a nonrestrictive (Open Access) channels, where for the gray literature the institutional repository could be the only sharing method, and thus the gray literature could be considered as the uniqueness items that can add significant values the university repository materials. This Poster demonstrates the establishment phases of institutional repository in a brand new University. We will be discussing, the early consideration of the gray literature, success stories, difficulties, establishing different workflow, plagiarism checks, approvals , stakeholder’s involvement, establishing policy and service level agreements. The future challenges associated with grey literature, the increasing demand on different material types such as audio, video and research datasets. The skill sets required in describing gray literature materials, expertise in preserving datasets, research data expertise and continued access are going to be the challenging faces for any ETD programs in near future. Finally will wrap up with statistical of the download and viewed items of the shared grey literature materials from the repository and how that led to increase items citation.
