IR frameworks

Institutional repositories for the research sector: feasibility study [pdf] is a report prepared for the National Library of New Zealand.

I was interested to see the role of the National Library moving this forward. From the initiative's Wiki:

A repository framework for New Zealand
The National Library of New Zealand, in collaboration with the Council of New Zealand University Librarians, has investigated options for institutional repositories for the New Zealand research sector. It formed an Expert Working Party with representatives from across the research sector. This working party investigated the feasibility of establishing a national repositories framework and recommended suitable Repository Architectures, with options for institutions to consider. The working party completed Fact Finding and delivered a Report of Findings and recommendations in July 2005. [Welcome - Institutional Repositories - Tertiary Wiki]

Incidentally, the shared Wiki infrastructure that is used here is interesting: is a resource for agencies to share information about information issues in the tertiary education sector.
