In January, Cornell University announced that it would be passing the hat for arXiv, the widely used online repository that houses e-prints of journal articles in physics, quantitative biology, mathematics, computer science, and related fields. The repository has long been housed at Cornell but had gotten too expensive to maintain alone, the university said…
The Institutional Repository Bibliography (IRB) presents selected English-language articles, books, technical reports, and other scholarly textual sources that are useful in understanding institutional repositories. (See the scope note for further details.)
Most sources have been published between 2000 and the present; however, a limited number of key sources published prior to 2000 are also included. Where possible, links are provided to e-prints in disciplinary archives and institutional repositories for published articles. Note that e-prints and published articles may not be identical.
