Jekyll and Institutional Repositories Open Access

Presentation slides from Open Repositories, 2018. Jekyll is an open source publishing system that relies on plain text files to produce websites. Because it was created as a simple blogging platform, Jekyll can be extended to support the journal publishing needs of any library with a scholarly communication or digital scholarship program. Better yet, Jekyll’s lack of an underlying database to organize and store content, in addition to its focus on plain text inputs using standard markup, reduces the amount of overhead needed for preservation. The demand for easy to use, open source scholarly publishing platforms has never been greater. I will present a model for leveraging Jekyll as a scholarly publishing extension to an institutional repository service for academic libraries.
