Does an open access institutional repository model respond to the needs of a non-academic documentation centre? My coauthors and I answer this question through the analysis of the collection materials and bibliographic data management at Artexte, an independent organization founded in 1980 in Montreal with the mandate to support research in contemporary Canadian art. Growing interest in digital publishing platforms prompted us to consider an open source solution for publicly funded publishing in the arts as an alternate option to commercial models.
