The Digital Repository Federation (DRF) is a federation for the universities and research institutions that have set up institutional repositories (IRs) in Japan. It was established by Hokkaido University, Chiba University and Kanazawa University in 2006 as part of the Cyber Science Infrastructure Program (CSI) of the National Institute of Informatics (NII). It became an independent organization based on self-sustaining operation in 2010, and is currently made up of 144 universities and research institutions (as of June 5, 2012). It is a loose-knit coalition that does not have a strict membership system. (Excerpt from this source)
