Abstract

The use of institutional repository (IR) has gained tremendous acceptance in several Higher Education Institution (HEI) in many countries. However, many HEIs report poor usage and enthusiasm. This paper develops a decision model to assist in characterization and selection of digital repository solutions in academic libraries. Five technologies, namely: Eprints, Dspace, Fedora Repository, Greenstone and SAP Document System explored. Using the model, these were evaluated with respect to installation process, functionality, performance, cost, security, usability, workflow, scalability and interoperability. The model was found to adequately address the critical transparency requirements for due diligence selection process in the establishment of Covenant University Institutional Repository. It is recommended that leveraging on this model would enhance adoption and usage of digital repositories in developing countries.
