Guidelines from Stellenbosch University (SUN). These highly referenced guidelines are targeted at academic institutions in developing countries world wide, who want to start an online open access research repository and who want to know in detail what is required and how to do it step-by-step. The focus during development of the open system has been long term research repository preservation and interoperability on the internet using the self-hosting value proposition. These guidelines are also an attempt to promote the use of a reference architecture and software release cadence as best practices, for the implementation of DSpace as a trusted institutional digital repository, much the same as SUN did with their repository, SUNScholar.
