Later this year, SGUL will be launching its institutional repository. Managed by the Library on behalf of SGUL, the repository will showcase full-text versions and bibliographic records of research created by researchers at St George’s. Most full-text publications will be available in full, to anyone, free of charge (open access) as copyright law and licences allow.

You can take a sneaky-peak at the repository (it’s still under development) at:

Before we officially launch, we need you to help us name our repository!

Suggest a name for the repository, and the SGUL Repository Team will pick the best one. The competition winner will receive an 16GB iPod nano!

Entrants must be:  SGUL Staff member or student.

How to enter:

  • email your suggestion to (only one suggestion per person, please)
  • include your full name, SGUL email address, as well as a contact telephone number with your entry

Closing date:     5pm on 14th September 2012.

(The winner will be announced in the SGUL Newsletter on 24th September.)

Tip: Your suggested name should try to reflect the openness of the content, and that it will contain papers written by St George’s researchers. For details of what other UK higher education institutions have named their repositories, see the OpenDOAR website
