What is an insitutional open access repository?

An institutional open access repository is a free online archive established to provide open access to the institution's research output.

HAL is an inter-institutional open access repository, operated by the CCSD, a joint unit led by the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), the French National Institute for computer science (Inria) and the University of Lyon. 

Since 2011, the University of Rennes 1 manages its own institutional open access repository known as HAL-Rennes 1.
