Repositories are being deployed in a variety of a business settings (learning, science, research, cultural heritage) and across a range of scales (subject, national, regional, institutional, project, laboratory, personal). A key aim of the OR08 conference is to address the managerial, practical and professional issues that arise from these diverse repositories as they contribute to an increasingly pervasive information environment. The OR08 Program Committee invited submissions of Repository Case Histories from the managers of established repositories, to be collected by the conference for sharing among the community of repository managers. The intention is create an evidence base to inform good practice, encourage discussion, facilitate networking and help raise the profile of the emerging profession. The collection of case histories will be used as a resource for discussion in the OR08 repository managers’ session, and disseminated publicly as a part of an ongoing collection of repository histories that can also be studied and analysed by information science students and researchers. Each submission should describe a repository from multiple perspectives, including some of the following organisational context, building a business case, overview of current deposit activity, institutional embedding, policy formulation, service sustainability, key challenges faced, important unresolved issues, the repository's mission, overview of current contents, developmental phases, faculty engagement, hosting and support, measuring and demonstrating success, major achievements
