This paper applies the analytic hierarchy process to evaluate collection development strategies for an institutional repository.
Abstract: Building the collection of an institutional repository requires a complex understanding of both digital library infrastructure and staff resources, as well as the institution's faculty awareness and attitudes toward self-archiving. For collection development decisions, institutional repository (IR) managers weigh the influence of these factors when pursuing strategies to increase content and faculty participation. To evaluate strategies for collection development, the authors will apply the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to create a model through which collection development strategies can be evaluated based on the unique context of the institution.
