The Registry of Open Access Repositories (ROAR, 2006), shows that there are 69 Higher Education (HE) Institutional repositories in the UK, with 60 of these being devoted to research material. There are very few institutional teaching and learning material repositories in the UK, and these repository types seem to exist on a much wider scale at present. An example of which, is the JISC’s Online Repository of [teaching and learning] Materials (JORUM). There is a clear need for investigation into institutional repositories that contain teaching material. According to the Digital Repositories Road Map, which represents JISC’s vision for 2010, we need to carry out analysis of existing business processes, workflows and dataflows; identify opportunities for innovative inter-working between repositories and between repositories and other applications (Heery & Powell, 2006). The Community Dimensions of a Learning Object Repository (CD-LOR, 2006) project team have already been looking into workflows with regards to learning objects and the Repository Management and Metadata (RepoMMan, 2006) have been investigating research output workflows. We are looking into workflows related to teaching material.
