This poster illustrates all the steps taken to create a UPR Digital Repository to support the research and creative work in UPR. This initiative is part of the project AILCUPR a Community of Practice to Support Research . It generates a UPR Digital Repository (http://dspace.uprrp.edu:8080/dspace/), a place in which UPR collects, preserves, disseminates and provides access to gray literature from researchers, faculty and student investigations from the University of Puerto Rico. Our faculty and graduate students can deposit their research into the Repository. They can place posters, power point presentations used in conferences and proceedings, and dissertation and master thesis. The strategy used by the University of Puerto Rico to develop its digital repository is through a community of practice, defined as group of people who share an interest or passion for something they do, and learn how to do better as they interact regularly (Wenger).
