Abstract

The IMU library plays many roles in supporting and facilitating the research, learning, teaching and administrative activities of IMU. One of the roles that has been overlook for many years is the library being an archive for the intellectual work of IMU. With the intention to reduce certain basic costs to the university, IMU library has internally developed its own Institutional Repository named “Central Digital Repository (CDR)” without any support from external / commercial parties, using the Open Source Repository Software Package named DSpace to house all digitized theses, student project papers such as the Research Project Reports, Elective Reports, Community Project Reports such as the Community and Family Case Study (CFCS) reports, Medical Student’s Portfolios and papers & posters produced by IMU Faculty members be it published or presented at Conferences or Seminars. It has also helped in saving shelve space as the library does not need to buy new shelves. The spaces used to shelve student works are now utilised for sitting spaces. The creation of the CDR has no doubt improved the business process of the IMU Library. Users are able to access the IMU’s Intellectual Property 24/7 from their own location without having to physically come to the library. Most importantly, a big sum of money has been saved if it were to be developed by the commercial vendors in the field.
