UCSB Library staff are developing plans, processes, and programs that contribute to its robust and modern Alexandria Digital Research Library repository project. University of Virginia's Libra digital repository is a model for ADRL to follow. This paper explores how digital repositories can appeal to their clientele, including through tools integrated within webpage user interfaces. The objective is for submissions to include better metadata and for retrievals to be easier as a result.
