The Stable Tasmanian Open Repository Service (STORS) is a joint State Library of Tasmania and Service Tasmania Online initiative that began operation in July 2003. STORS allows government and non-government publishers in Tasmania to contribute electronic publications and documents to a central repository where they are both immediately accessible and maintained for posterity. STORS provides a persistent URL for each document as well as ongoing file conversion, a file checksum, and links reflecting document versions or relationships. The major operational problems that have emerged relate to file conversion and the complexities inherent in composite HTML documents.
