SUNY Digital Repository (SDR) is a centrally managed repository that includes collections from approximately 40 campus and SUNY System Administration. Its content covers a broad range of topics with a strong focus on local campus archival and special collections. This repository is also used to house Open Educational Resources (OER).
The SDR is based on a DSpace platform called DSpace Express. It provides for basic functionality in an affordable full- service repository with cloud hosting, technical support and upgrades.
This model of support requires each campus to identify local contacts who will be responsible for working with their community to solicit and add content into the repositories. Questions on content (accessibility, copyright issues, take-down requests, etc.) will be forwarded to the campus liaison for a decision on how to address.

Each campus environment will assign administrator(s) for their local community. Roles may be assigned for the entire campus environment or for specific sub-communities and/or collections.
When developing a local workflow, there are many factors to keep in mind:
