While the adoption of institutional repositories is now widespread on a global scale, there are dramatic differences in their implementation across institutions, reflecting the efforts by librarians and repository managers to balance competing visions for repositories with the concrete needs of their local context. Even with the growing support of institutional open access (OA) policies in the last two decades, which often indicate that published articles should be submitted to the intuitional repository, however, many studies illustrate a very low deposit rate of published articles to the institutional repositories. This presentation describes the mission of our library to make the repository a comprehensive resource for information on institutional scholarly output and how integration with university reporting workflows has evolved as a natural outgrowth of the pursuit of this mission, and led to one of the successful examples of OA policy implementation at research institutions, with a high compliance rate of more than 75% full text deposited in the year of 2018.

Daryl Grenz, Research Repository Lead (KAUST) contributed to this presentation.
