Repository Staff and Skills document

In response to requests from the repository community, and with input from UKCoRR members, SHERPA has compiled a Skills set and description of the common repository roles needed to develop and manage a successfulinstitutional repository.

The document is not designed to describe the skills set required of a particular repository post but rather is a list of the entire set of skills, knowledge and abilities required for the development and management of a successful institutional repository.

The document can be found under the SHERPA site's Guidance & Advocacy page (

**** 2008 Update. The first revision of the Repository Staff and Skills document is now available ****

The third edition is now available from the Repositories Support Project website on the Publications page.

We hope this will be helpful to the repository community and welcome you comments and suggestions for improvement.
