What is an Institutional Repository

An institutional repository is a single, online place where a community (in this case, the University of West Florida) gathers and preserves scholarly output produced by its members and makes these materials available to the world (copyright permitting). This output may include both publications in peer-reviewed journals and materials not published elsewhere (datasets, pre-prints, post-prints, performance recordings, syllabi, theses and dissertations, book chapters etc).

As defined by EnablingOpenScholarship, institutional repositories are "digital collections of the outputs created within a university or research institution."  In simple terms, it is a collection of research and scholarship.
