On the basis of the analysis results, the researcher implements the IR Website of National Tsing Hua University. In order to understand the definition and related issues of open access and institutional repository, the researcher reviewed literature, selected 34 representative universities according to the following criteria: (1) among the top one-hundred universities ranked by Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2006, (2) using three main IR softwares, DSpace, E-Prints and Bepress, (3) amount of documents in their IR systems, (4) schools creating these systems, and (5) primarily using Chinese language. The IR Websites of those chosen universities are measured by the content analysis methodology, and the criteria of evaluation are drawn up after observing the functions of more than 300 worldwide IR Websites.

The focuses lie in the search, browse, long-term preservation, and interoperability with other systems. According to the results of the content analysis, the researcher added and amended the program and function of the system, promoted the effectiveness of the system and advanced back-end management, and further did localization and customized program amendment. For constructing content, the researcher designed data processing process and drafted related policies and documents one after another, actively collected academic literature list and full text which can be made public within institutions, checked and authorized works, set up Metadata, and opened OAI-PMH etc. Finally, this research generalized some conclusions and suggestions from the system practice and the experiences of planning and running of the institutional repository system and provided references for universities in constructing their functions and services in the institutional repository system.
