This paper focuses on the institutional repository work of the ARROW project, which has been developed within the following three stage framework:

  1. conceptualising and developing an ARROW institutional repository solution comprising software, policy frameworks and implementation strategies,
  2. implementing the ARROW repository within the project’s partner institutions, and
  3. offering the ARROW repository solution to other Australian universities.

The paper will look at the decisions the ARROW project made at the outset and provide a review of those decisions after two years of operation. It will also look forward at ARROW’s plans for 2006 and ongoing development work.
