This briefing will present findings from a recent quantitative analysis of 115 bepress and other research university repositories, along with lessons learned at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). VCU has been a bepress customer since 2014, and since that time has grown its repository to roughly 13,000 items, 1 million downloads, and complete runs of two established national association journals. This briefing will advance conversations about shared repository infrastructure requirements including capacity, support, community, and policy.

Note: this briefing has not been sponsored, encouraged, or reviewed by any commercial interests.
