Creating an institutional repository on the cheap

This proposed session will cover how to create your own institutional repository when your library either lacks funding or IT infrastructure. The session will go over how you can install Dspace onto Amazon's Web Services. This allows libraries to create a full-fledged institutional repository while not requiring their own hardware, support from their IT department, or sophisticated technology skills. A Dspace installation running on AWS can cost as little as $15 a month and allows libraries to host digital objects in any format (video, audio, text, etc.).
