Abstract: The reference librarians at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology play important roles in developing the HKUST Institutional Repository. They have been engaged in all stages of its development: the definition of goals and scope, evaluation of system and content, forming strategies and procedures, interpreting publishers’ policies, contacting and servicing faculty members, acquisition of content, and promotional efforts. This paper describes how the reference librarians were involved in developing the repository and how their roles were reshaped.
