Abstract

In recent years, institutional repositories have been relatively neglected by the scholarly communication society given the advance of gold open access, in which articles would then be freely accessible by all in the public and free from the myriad of constraints brought by green open access. However, institutional repositories are capable to serving more functions than many have imagined. An institutional repository could serve as a source of impact of academic libraries when working together with the gold open access initiatives in an academic institution. By providing a scholarly communication platform where all research output could be accessed by the public, the institutional repository can provide a platform of interaction and dissemination for the academic library with the public which gold open access through the publisher could not provide.
