The Institutional Repository Bibliography (IRB) presents selected English-language articles, books, technical reports, and other scholarly textual sources that are useful in understanding institutional repositories.
(See the scope note for further details.) Most sources have been published between 2000 and the present; however, a limited number of key sources published prior to 2000 are also included. Where possible, links are provided to works that are freely available on the Internet, including e-prints in disciplinary archives and institutional repositories. OAPEN.ORG. UNECA IR Home.

In this month of April, ORBi has reached a new landmark: 60,000 references, of which over 36,000 (60%) are provided with full text versions (50% of them available on open access).
An international visibility which is booming as we can observe on average over a thousand daily downloads which originate from all over the world! Open Access today: becoming more and more essential! Currently over 20% of the whole of the world's academic and scientific literature is already available on Open Access: 8.5% in periodicals on open access and 11.9% via institutional repositories (Björk, 2010), figures which are constantly growing.
