Repositories are a vital tool in modern information management and a key component of preservation and long-term availability. They are not well-suited, however, to the current challenges posed by our information-rich society and the multitude of stakeholders involved in the modern scholarly publishing system. Strengthening repositories and standardizing preservation processes are critically important. This challenge will require not only leading multiple stakeholder groups but also reforming multiple information systems, architectures, philosophies, practices, and more.
