The British Library launched a Shared Research Repository infrastructure for 6 partner heritage organisations with active research bases, classed as Independent Research Organisations. To meet expectations of Open Access and data sharing, we put expertise into building a multi-tenant research repository, developed by Ubiquity Press, shared across IRO partners. Pathways to long-term preservation and community codebase contributions are ongoing priorities.

The University of Virginia and Ubiquity Press are our partners in the Advancing Hyku project, funded by Arcadia. We’re all partnering to further work with the repository community, representing wider needs within the Advancing Hyku project.
