Currently central data stores associated with institutional repositories and other metadata aggregations face a number of challenges: data is often stored in remote locations, in incompatible data formats, and with varying degrees of quality--this data must be aggregated, normalized, and integrated. Existing data is frequently highly variable in quality, often incomplete, and may not conform to existing standards...

The Metadata Repository (MR) component provides an essential central storage function for this aggregation of data.
