Summary During the past few years there has been a remarkable development of institution-based digital repositories. In the development of digital repositories with different purposes and dissimilar contents, libraries are being challenged by multiple notions of easy access, reliable authentication, steady growth, adequate support, and long-term sustainability. The aim of this paper is to share the HKUST Library’s experience in developing, implementing, and maintaining purpose-driven digital repositories with a view to provide users with effective access to digital information contents needed for teaching, research, or other purposes.
