    Please consider replacing your use of the phrase “institutional repositories” with specific mentions of *people* — managers, developers, liaison librarians, et cetera.

    This will accomplish two things: remove the sense that institutional repositories are magic wands that run themselves, and enforce person-centric rather than machine-centric thinking vis-a-vis resources, policies, etc.

    I think the simple message that repositories make life easier for academics will appeal to decision makers within institutions as well as to individual academics. To quote from a draft document that I just skimmed:

    JISC aims to support academics with their publications and to make it easier to store, find, share, preserve and use their intellectual outputs. Digital repositories can help with making these functions easier.
