This paper focuses on the institutional repository work of the ARROW project, which has been developed within the following three stage framework:
- conceptualising and developing an ARROW institutional repository solution comprising software, policy frameworks and implementation strategies,
- implementing the ARROW repository within the project’s partner institutions, and
- 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.
