Commercial Solutions for Building Open Access Repositories
Most repository software providers will install their software at your institution, and customise it to comply with your layout standards.
There are a number of companies that offer a "turn-key" solution for your repository. These range from stand-alone systems to far larger systems, integrated with other features and services - like a library management system.
Other complete solutions include companies which offer to host your repository for you. In such cases it is essential for the instituion to make sure that allo fthe material - the content and the metadata is freely available for export at the end of the hosting contract.
