In the past, this blog has tended to cover news about the UWE Research Repository. However, there are of course many other useful repositories and services out there which are also of great benefit of researchers. One example is the Oxfam GB iLibrary.
The Oxfam iLibrary showcases Oxfam research, programme and policy information from anti-poverty and campaign work worldwide. The repository came about after a realisation that there was no single, secure deposit location for the charity's digital assets. By having simple search and deposit functions, it aims to be usable by everybody, whether or not they have a background in repository use.
Oxfam iLibrary is supported by BioMed Central, and uses their hosted solution, Open Repository. The repository is available on the new Oxfam Policy & Practice website at http://policy-practice.oxfamhosted.co.uk/publications
, and there is more information about it at http://www.openrepository.com/news/press/153
