I am in the process of lobbying my academic institution to provide and
support an Eprints server and associated infrastructure. So far progress has
mainly consisted of a meeting with our library director and a few of his
staff. We are setting up a meeting with the Subcommittee on Information
Technology and Library here in a week or so also. One of the questions the
library director asked was: how many journals currently have copyrights that
allow self-archiving? Is anyone collecting such a list?
