“We chose Open Repository because we were looking for a hosted service to help us get started. We wanted to move forward with the repository services but did not have the technological infrastructure needed locally to support DSpace ourselves. Contracting our hosting services with Open Repository allowed us to get started and focus on working with our customer base immediately.”
Library Campus Manager, University of Arizona
