“I can only praise the Open Repository staff for being extremely helpful and supportive both during the establishment of the repository and subsequently with various modifications. In particular, the technical staff have been extraordinarily responsive to questions and requests for changes. Recently, the staff helped with a refresh of our site and we are delighted with the new “look” and simplified navigation. Very impressive service.”

“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 with hosting services with Open Repository allowed us to get started and focus on working with our customer base immediately.”
Kimberly Chapman Library Campus Manager, University of Arziona
