To know the status of IRs in research Organizations.To know most popular software for IRs.</p> <p>INSTITUTIONAL REPOSITORY SOFTWARE1. Archimedes- The Open CAD 2. Bepress (Open Access Scholarly Publishing Services)3. CDSware (An OAI-compliant software for document servers developed at CERN)4. CONTENTdm (Digital Collection Management Software by OCLC)5. DSpace (An open source repository software package)6. EPrints (EPrintsis a free and open-source software package)7. Fedora (Fedorais a general-purpose, open-source digital object repository system)8. Greenstone (Greenstoneis a suite of open-source software)9. Open Repository (Registered DSpace Provider offers Repository Hosting, Deployment, &amp; Customization, Repository support training &amp; maintenance.)</p> <p>METHODOLOGY </p> <p> The available literature on the topic has been used to examine the IR concept in the country. Relevant literature was also obtained by browsing different notable websites. For conducting this study, authors have consulted the Registry of Open Access Repositories (ROAR), and the Directory of Open Access Repositories (open DOAR). </p> <p>INSTITUTINAL REPOSTORYs IN INDIA Many initiatives have been observed in India to digitiz and preserve available knowledge. Various institutions have established their IRs to share resources and making their visibility worldwide. Academic institutions have also started preserving and sharing their resources with the help of IRs. The repository can be created and modified according to the needs and use of an institution. To create IR, many open sources software are available which are free and easily downloadable. </p> <p>STATUS OF IRs IN INDIAAs per Registry of Open Access Repositories (ROAR), there are 97 institutions having IR but some of them are repeated in the list available.As per Open Directory of Open Access Repositories (Open DOAR), there are 65 institutions having repositories in India.India stands second in Asia after Japan (89) in the number of IRs. (ROAR information)India stands third after Japan (135) and Taiwan (58) as per Open DOAR information.We choose 81 IR for our study.</p> <p>STATUS OF INSTITUTIONAL REPOSITORIES IN INDIA(Contd.) Table no1below show the status of IRs in India. In this study 81 institutions in India (including IITs, IIMs, NITs, universities, research organizations, etc) have IRs. Study reveals that most of the IRs are using Dspace software. Out of 81 IRs, 50 are using Dspace, 25 Eprint, 2 Greenstone, and 4 are using other software. </p> <p>11STATUS OF INSTITUTIONAL REPOSITORY IN INDIAN INSTITUTES OF TECHNOLOGY (IITs)S.
