The aim of this Welsh Repository Network (WRN) start-up project bid, run by the University of Wales Aberystwyth (UWA) on behalf of WHELF (Wales Higher Education Libraries Forum), is to put in place an essential building block for the development of an integrated network of institutional digital repositories in Wales. Currently, just two of the 12 HEIs in Wales have open access digital repositories (Aberystwyth and Cardiff), both of which are pilot rather than production models, lightly populated and resident on shared equipment. The project aims to run a centrally managed hardware procurement programme designed to provide every HEI in Wales with dedicated and configured repository hardware by the end of 2007 as a major step towards realisation of the WRN. In close collaboration with the technical, organisational and operational support specifically provided for Welsh HEIs within the JISC funded Repository Support Project (RSP), also to be delivered from UWA, this initiative will provide a cost-effective, collaborative and decisive boost to the repository agenda in Wales and help JISC achieve the critical mass of populated repositories and digital content that is a stated objective of the Repositories and Preservation Programme. Project start date: 2007-04-01. Project end date: 2009-03-31. (Excerpt from this source)
