    Abstract

    Metadata creation and the formulation of digital preservation policies for institutional repositories require significant resource, if they are to be carried out well. This level of resourcing may have been underestimated hitherto in the process of proselytising for institutional repositories. Suggests that libraries and librarians are well placed to give input to the metadata and digital preservation activities inherent in building institutional repositories. They should be resourced to give more attention to such tasks. The paper tries to make a strong case for librarian-mediated deposit rather than pure self-archiving as the future of building institutional repositories.
