  • About the Authors

A digital repository can provide a library or similar institution the capability to offer patrons a variety of media and rich cultural collections.  Repositories can be robust, valuable resources, but for a library they can be large and potentially difficult to create and manage.  Cloud resources offer a wide range of tools and services which can be used to build a repository of any kind and manage it in a sustainable, successful way.  Subscription services, development tools, and virtual infrastructure can be used to leverage existing repository software or build a custom repository to exact specifications.  Consider the capabilities and shortcomings of cloud resources when creating a digital repository.
