[Objective] The article explores the features and shortcomings of several new typical open source Institutional Repository(IR) software including IR+, Zentity, Islandora and Hydra. [Methods] Reviewing relevant information, as well as local installation and testing of these software. [Results] It seems that each open source IR software has different system functions, service features, system architectures, scalabilities, etc. [Limitations] The article only makes a comparative analysis of some new typical open source IR software. [Conclusions] The study is conducive to learning excellent design concept of some open source IR software, moreover, it can provide a reference for how to select appropriate ones from IR open source software to establish an IR.
