Abstract: In 2008, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) implemented the first Institutional Repository in Ghana. Six month later and with 560 postgraduate theses entered, KNUST appeared 52nd on the webometrics ranking for 100 best universities in Africa. This success resulted in the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Ghana (CARLIGH) and International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publication (INASP) helping four academic institutions to implement repositories. The repositories’ managers promised using it to showcase research from their institutions, starting with graduate theses/dissertations.
