When doing research I find little gems of information in repositories or archives…the more I use them the more I need a tool that searches them all at the same time in order to save time. I like the idea of a registry where all archives are listed, where you have the notion that by consulting this registry your being exhaustive as possible. Such a place is the Institutional Archives Registry…they do an excellent job but the only problem for me is that you can’t browse by subject. Archive storage houses can come from associations, federations, universities, organisations, etc…
Here are a few repositories I’ve found where the content is specific to LIS (not including journal databases):
I like the idea of E-print network (for scientists and engineers), maybe we need a site like this for LIS.
Here is a relevant article on repositories.
