The development of digital repositories has been a relative recent one, starting in late 2000 with the release a software package called E-Prints. Since that time, the establishment of digital repositories has gained momentum. Factors such as the falling costs for online storage and the increase of broadband networking technologies have contributed to their current popularity.
