How to Use the Toolkit
The toolkit provides a roadmap for establishing and operating a digital repository in your institution. It is a compilation of concepts, tools and links to resources, all organized in logical steps reflecting the key stages in a repository development project.
The content is presented in such a way that you are introduced to concepts and approaches in combination with links for further reading. You may as well imagine in a literal sense that this is a box full of tools to support any part of your repository establishment and management undertaking. Relevant resources are linked from the different sections, but also available in the resources library.
It is recommended that you read the section Understanding key terminologies and concepts. This section provides basic information on concepts and terminologies that are frequently employed throughout this toolkit to describe various terms and processes.
It is not mandatory to read the toolkit linearly. But it is crucial to understand the toolkit as a full set of tools that are arranged in sequential manner based on perceived logical steps when implementing a repository project.
