Let’s Git Creative: Using GitLab to Improve the Institutional Repository Workflow at the University of North Texas
Texas Digital Library
The University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries has managed an institutional repository (IR) called UNT Scholarly Works for the past decade, and since adding new team members and transitioning to remote work, we aimed to improve our ingestion workflow for this new environment without starting over completely. We turned to GitLab and its associated tools to supplement our current workflow. It has enabled us to track, communicate priorities, and document item-level information all in one place. There has been some trial and error, but GitLab has been a forgiving training ground for even our least experienced team members.
