The IRI-Scotland project (http://www.iriscotland.lib.ed.ac.uk/) carried out a series of online questionnaires in 2006 to assess the attitudes towards open access and institutional repositories within the higher education community in Scotland. In total, three questionnaires were targeted at different stakeholder groups within the community - academic authors, technical staff responsible for repository development, and senior management from academic libraries.
The second IRI-Scotland survey was targeted at technical staff, usually based in academic libraries or aligned information services support groups, who would be responsible for developing a digital repository in their institution. The questions were aimed to help determine the functional requirements needed to build a national hosted repository service that would be suitable for the current and future repository infrastructure in Scotland.
We present here anonymous data from the technical staff survey in comma separated value format.
