In 2014, Library Services at Minnesota State University, Mankato launched Cornerstone, an institutional repository using the bepress Digital Commons® platform. In the same year, the Archives and Preservation Area within Library Services launched a new, hosted platform for their digital collections, ARCH, utilizing the open source software Islandora. In this paper, we will discuss our decision to create not one but two digital collections on separate platforms and the strategies that we embraced to develop, market, and move both repositories forward.
