Lordan Dempsey's Twitter feed led me to this blog post:


An excerpt:

"My 6+ years of involvement with formal repositories, essentially 
Institutional Repositories (IRs), has convinced me that their 
design and philosophy is completely wrong for modern scientific 
research, especially data-driven research."

While I have seen surveys of the number of institutions that have 
built IRs, I have yet to see information about the role they play 
in the day-to-day work of researchers.  It may be too early to do 
such a survey, as the IR world is still very young and usage 
could change rapidly over time.
