    • found: Wikipedia, May 23, 2006 (Institutional repository: An Institutional Repository is an online locus for collecting and preserving--in digital form--the intellectual output of an institution, particularly a research institution. For a university, this would include materials such as research journal articles (before (preprints) and after (postprints) undergoing peer review, and digital versions of theses and dissertations, but it might also include other digital assets generated by normal academic life, such as administrative documents, course notes, or learning objects. IRs are partly linked to the notion of a digital library, i.e., the collection, classification, curation and preservation of digital content, analogous with the library's conventional function of collecting, classifying, curating and preserving analog content.)
