  • More about the repository: The University of Hull digital repository has followed a process of development through meeting the immediate content management needs of the University. As such, doctoral theses, exam papers and University committee papers make up the largest collections to date. Research output management is being undertaken through close liaison with the launch of a research information system and integration with this. The aim of the repository is to manage whatever digital content we receive, within reason.

A new interface using the Hydra technical framework was launched in March 2012. This is the outcome of a collaborative development effort with US partners and a developing community of adopters
