Five Taiwan universities have been ranked among the world's top 100 institutional digital repositories in a ranking report recently published by a Spanish research body.

Leading the group was National Taiwan University (NTU), which came 11th in the list compiled by the Cybermetrics Lab under the Spanish National Research Council — the largest research body in Spain and the third largest of its kind in Europe.

National Tsing Hua University came 57th, with National Central University (NCU) coming 75th, National Chengchi University 77th and National Cheng Kung University finishing in 79th spot on the list, which is released biannually in January and July.

NTU library's circulating collection currently contains over 180,000 items or files, Chen Kuang-hua, deputy director of NTU's library, said Monday, adding that he hoped the school could digitizeall repositories in the near future.
