Authors: Asamoah–Hassan, Helena R.
Keywords: alternative scholarly communication
institutional repository
open access
Issue Date: 2010
Publisher: Emerald Journal
Abstract: The paper was written to present what the KNUST Library has done to introduce alternative scholarly communication in the form of an institutional repository to the university. The study discusses management issues like agreement on policy to govern it, its acceptance by management and faculty as well as library personnel, and the software to be used that came into play along with challenges when the institutional repository was being planned and implemented. The paper indicates that the introduction of the KNUSTSpace institutional repository has brought several benefits to the researchers in the university by offering them an alternative to the traditional means for scholarly communication and through that exposing their research to the world and the benefits that come with that. The university has also been showcased. The paper clearly explains the key management issues encountered in the process of setting up the institutional repository and how they were tackled successfully. The paper will therefore be of assistance to libraries contemplating setting up institutional repositories.
