6. A service which increases the quality of institutional repositories (Cream of Science). This is an example of a service which is built on a number of institutional repositories. It pulls together leading national researchers and their output in a decentralised manner, thereby showcasing national research results. Due to the scope of the DRIVER project, this study is limited to six cases in the European domain. Good practices and lessons learnt in the repository field should know no geographical boundaries; it is clear that there are various interesting developments in Australia, Latin America and the United States.

Where repositories are well embedded in institutional workflow this may be absorbed without severe cost implications, but this applies only to a small number of repositories that have found a way to successfully involve researchers in the 38 A DRIVER’s Guide to European Repositories deposit process and minimise the need for third-party mediators. Where mediation (usually involving library staff) is the norm for the deposit itself or for quality-control procedures subsequent to the deposit, then increases in content will necessitate the investment of more staff time.

There is a cost, though, and if repositories assume over time a position that is much more centre stage in the institution’s life, which is what is expected, then a proper and realistic budget line needs to be created for them. In some institutions the library has been expected to create and sustain a repository out of existing resources – both in financial and staff-time terms – but this is not an appropriate expectation if the institution is serious about its mission. 14 This tool may be useful for people thinking about a repository and needing to gain senior management commitment.
