Institutional Repositories at UMass Lowell: A National Model for Academic Libraries

Records and Institutional Memory

The Library will work with the University’s records management team, ensuring that appropriate (for historical and institutional memory) documentation and records generated by our many departments and programs are processed and incorporated in our fifth major institutional repository. This initiative will expand the efforts that have seen the Library build repositories for documents and records originating in the Athletics Department and the Honors College, to name two examples. All departments and programs within the University require Library input into a document and records assessment, for possible inclusion in long-term document and record preservation, (and retrieval), in our institutional repository.
