Planning checklist

The planning checklists to be found in each key section of the RSP web site are offered as a series of key questions designed to ‘make you think'. Please note that we have not crowded presentation by trying to offer answers to the questions, many of which may be local or specific to each institution.

This planning checklist covers legal and policy issues. Here are the questions to ask yourself:

  • Have you defined an overall vision for your institutional repository to guide your policy framework?
  • Have you developed a collection policy for your institutional repository?
  • Have you defined a submission policy for your institutional repository?
  • Have you defined the content types that you will be including in your institutional repository?
  • Have you defined a deposit licence and policy for your institutional repository?
  • Have you defined a re-use licence for your institutional repository?
  • Have you considered how a preservation policy will emerge from your other policy decisions?
  • Have you decided who will be responsible for checking the copyright status of items coming into the repository?
