In 2002, the University of Melbourne Information Division established a repository for research papers authored by University academics. The effort forms part of a world wide endeavour to share scholarly literature via eprint repositories. The repository uses eprints.org software and is compliant with the protocols of the Open Archives Initiative to ensure interoperability with major worldwide eprint initiatives. Academics within the Faculty of Economics and Commerce were the initial target group of contributors as they have an existing culture of digital distribution of draft research papers. The paper provides a brief overview of the relevant literature, discusses the benefits of an institutional repository, outlines the methods used to gain academic support and involvement in the project and gives a current state of play of the repository of the University of Melbourne in terms of its usage and content coverage. The paper will complement Establishing an eprint repository at the University of Melbourne: implementation aspects by Eve Young and Shirley Sullivan.
