Introduces the tools for study and research in spiritual formation and leadership.

What???

An institutional repository is an online locus for collecting, preserving, and disseminating - in digital form - the intellectual output of an institution.

The four main objectives for having an institutional repository are:

  1. to provide open access to institutional research output by self-archiving it;
  2. to create global visibility for an institution's scholarly research;
  3. to collect content in a single location;
  4. to store and preserve other institutional digital assets, including unpublished or otherwise easily lost ("grey") literature such as theses or technical reports.
