Specific reference is made to capturing certain types of research materials, such as E-Theses and E-Prints, the challenges in obtaining materials, following proper legal protocol, and storing the material in perpetuity. Chapters discuss many different models that have been adopted worldwide for IR management, and presents a case study from the Edinburgh Research Archive that documents the path from conception to completion of an IR.
