- This study examines the use of trusted digital repository tools and standards for self-audit in digital repositories. While there has been increasing attention given to external audit and certification of trusted digital repositories, there has not yet been a cross-institutional study of repository self-audits. Describing a series of semi-structured interviews with six information professionals employed at six university digital repositories, this study examines these repositories’ experiences with self-audit. The study explores the tools that are being used for self-audit, how self-audits are conducted, and the value of self-audit to repositories and their stakeholders. Findings from this study provide some insight into the current state of self-audit in digital repositories, and the paper also suggests areas for improvement and future research in this field.
