This paper is an attempt to determine the willingness of the faculty at Kent State University to deposit papers such as journal articles, lecture notes, sylabi, and other academic material into an institutional repository run by the university which would make these documents available to anyone with access to the internet. The results gathered via an online survey point towards the fact that the faculty at this institution would not be willing to deposit material for a variety of reasons. The answers gathered tend to point towards copyright issues as the main reason why the faculty would not be willing to place documents into an institutional repository.
