Online repositories highlight the work of universities, researchers, academic institutions and other organizations. They could be libraries, corporations or government agencies, non-profits, and libraries. The repository enables these organizations to make scientific content accessible to the public at large and disseminated in an efficient manner without burdening local technical staff. The online repository functions as an archive that is able to store digital information on a long-term basis. It is accessible to anyone with access to the internet.

In order to store the data in the repository, a company must set up guidelines and rules on how the data can be accessed and what level of privacy is required. The institution must also establish a mechanism to verify the integrity of the data and ensure that it is not infringing on any copyrights. In addition the online repository must be equipped with tools and technology that can perform diverse functions like data aggregation, indexing linking and searchability.

According to the report by Henderson (2008) and Matkin (2002) The motive behind the establishment of the repository for research by faculty is primarily based on sharing, accessibility, and discoverability of unique collections of LOs, projects and projects that are made within the university. A faculty repository should have a solid marketing strategy to make the community aware of its benefits as well as its existence.

There are many benefits of having an online repository for faculty. The data can be used for teaching and learning purposes and can be shared with other researchers and it can be reused easily which can reduce costs in the future. Furthermore, the information can be accessed anytime as it is accessible through the repository, which reduces time and reference effort for it. The information is also accessible, which boosts its visibility and credibility.
