Abstract: This project is on implementation of institutional repository (IR) using DSpace Repository software at Federal University of Technology, Minna which was undertaken because of the absence of a digital archive in federal university of technology, Minna capable of storing, preserving and providing access to the intellectual output produced by the members of the institution. Institutional Repositories are recognized as an essential infrastructure in institutions of higher learning for the ICT era. Universities are producing more digital objects like research articles, reports, thesis, Audio/Video, clippings and datasets in ever increasing number while existing objects in hard copy are being digitized continuously. A variety of software packages for digital asset and content management to collect, preserve and provide access to these digital objects exist. This software’s may be open source or proprietary. Proprietary IR software’s are custom specified and built while open source IR software source code is generally available and free. The repository was setup using DSpace, an open source repository software solution. Other exiting open source repository software’s include EPrints, Greenstone, Fedora and LibLime Koha. DSpace repository software may be installed on a windows or ubuntu server platform either of which will run all the services that DSpace provides. Internet connection is required to setup DSpace on both platforms. Once the repository was successfully installed, its layout was customized and communities and collections were setup based on the various schools and departments of the institution where digital objects may be uploaded. Once the repository was up and running, its vital metadata information needs to be updated on a continuous basis. This requires updating the core systems of the DSpace software such as its java runtime environment, upgrade the system with latest releases and check for broken links to uploaded publication.
