Here is not the place to provide a full account of the JISC-funded RepoMMan Project that ran from June 2005 to September 2007. Its work is well documented elsewhere. Suffice it here to say that the Project was established to allow a ‘user’ (a researcher, a teacher, a student, an administrator, a ...) to interact with a repository at their University. When RepoMMan was set up it is probably true to say that the prevailing notion of a digital repository was of a facility to showcase a University’s research paper output. At the University of Hull we could see benefit in holding a much wider variety of materials in a repository and, crucially, in making the repository available during the private development of materials that it would eventually make more publicly available. The RepoMMan tool was developed to allow a repository user to interact with a private repository space in order to assist their development of materials and to make straightforward the ‘publication’ process when the material is complete.
