This poster presents the various benefits of making work open access via an institutional repository such as the UWL Repository. These benefits include: making work more accessible for researchers around the world; allowing NGOs, businesses, practitioners, policy makers and journalists the potential for free access to research; and, various academic advantages such as the possibility of increased citation rates and the potential for finding new collaborators for research. The poster also outlines the steps that have been made to improve repository discoverability, and presents statistics that show a sharp increase in repository usage over the past six months.
