Point and Counterpoint: The Purpose of Institutional Repositories: Green OA or Beyond?

Kennison, Rebecca R.; Shreeves, Sarah L.; Harnad, Stevan

In this "debate-style" article, Rebecca Kennison and Sarah Shreeves argue in their piece, "Institutional Repositories -— So Much More than Green OA," that a repository collection development strategy open to research output of all kinds then positions the IR to be able to fulfill whatever mandates for deposit may occur. Stevan Harnad responds, in "Ordering Institutional Repository Priorities vs. Breaking Through Open Doors," that the priority of any IR manager should be pushing for the adoption of immediate-deposit mandates and then ensuring compliance to those mandates.
