Digital repositories are so celebrated for their benefits (increased searchability, access, and preservation!) that it can be difficult to focus on the barriers to entry that many libraries and organizations face: a lack of on-premise resources– such as dedicated servers and IT staff– as well as the substantial cost of a digital initiative. So where do you put your data when you can’t house it yourself and don’t have a huge budget?
