Q. What is an institutional repository?Sep 05, 2019
An institutional repository is a single, online place where a community (in this case, Boston University) gathers and preserves scholarly, creative, and research output produced by its members and makes these materials available to the world free of charge (copyright permitting). This output may include both publications in peer-reviewed journals and materials not published elsewhere (datasets, pre-prints, post-prints, lecture videos, performance recordings, syllabi, theses and dissertations, etc). Books are not typically included in institutional repositories.
OpenBU is BU's institutional repository.
