Setting up an institutional e-print archive

Stephen Pinfield, Mike Gardner and John MacColl
outline some of the practical issues involved in setting up an
OAI-compliant e-print archive in a Higher Education Institute

    "This article outlines some of the main stages in setting up an
    institutional e-print archive. It is based on experiences at the
    universities of Edinburgh and Nottingham which have both recently
    developed pilot e-print servers (1). It is not the intention here to
    present arguments in favour of open access e-print archives -- this
    has been done elsewhere (2). Rather, it is hoped to present give an
    account of some of the practical issues that arise in the early
    stages of establishing an archive in a higher education
