Digital Commons @ Otterbein is an institutional repository (IR) of a collection of digital materials that captures and preserves the intellectual output of the university community. An IR would respond to two strategic issues facing our institution:
- provide a central component of a readily accessible depository for selected archival material, video and still images, current news and events, procedural and policy guidelines, and other information that benefits the university community and other public users;
- and serve as tangible indicators of an institution’s quality, thus increasing its visibility, prestige, and public value.
