Institutional respositories--digital collections that capture and preserve the intellectual output of university communities--respond to two strategic issues facing academic institutions: 1) they provide a central component in reforming scholarly communication by stimulating innovation in a disaggregated publishing structure; and 2) they serve as tangible of an institution's quality, thus increasing its visiblity, prestige, and public value. This paper examines institutional respositories from these complimentary perspectives, describing their potential role and exploring their impact on major stakeholders in the scholarly communication process.
