Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to describe the development of OpenAIR, the institutional repository at the Robert Gordon University.
Design/methodology/approach – The paper outlines the principles that underpinned the development of the repository (visibility, sustainability, quality, and findability) and some of the technical and financial implications that were considered.
Findings – OpenAIR@RGU evolved from a desire to make available an electronic collection of PhD theses, but was developed to become a means of storing and providing access to a range of research output produced by staff and research students: book chapters, journal articles, reports, conference publications, theses, artworks, and datasets.
Originality/value – The paper describes the repository's contribution to collection development.
