The decision to host a digital repository or purchase a hosted solution can be a daunting one. What are some of the factors involved? Who should be consulted along the way? How does one go about making this decision? This presentation addresses these questions and the decision process that led the University of Massachusetts Amherst Libraries to choose Digital Commons, the digital repository software developed and hosted by bePress. Several projects currently underway in ScholarWorks@UMass Amherst are highlighted.
