Using a population of Carnegie-designated master's institutions, this study attempted to quantify the existence of digital repositories at those institutions. A content analysis of repositories containing some type of faculty content was conducted. Pathways of discovery of these collections--including open web searching, inclusion in repository directories, and access through an institution's website--were also noted. Approximately 20 percent of the master's colleges and universities maintain repositories containing faculty scholarship plus many other types of student productivity and university documents.
