Joomla as an Alternate System of Institutional Repository in Visva-Bharati University
In the paperless society, the reorganization of an institutional repository (IR) has been increasing tremendously which now became an essential infrastructure of intellectual communication. (Jain, Bentley, & Oladiran) An IR is a collection of digitized documents consisting of accessible collections of scholarly publications that represent the intellectual assets of an institution. It is a system for academic institutions to manage the digitized documents their communities produce, maximize access to research outputs both preprint and postprint publications and also to increase the visibility and academic prestige of both the institution and authors. This paper will draw the attentions of library administrators about an alternate (except different repositories software likewise DSpace, Eprints, Greenstone, etc) way to manage the Institutional Repository for the University / Institute.
