Also funded by JISC-FAIR, the e-Prints UK project will be developing
subject-based, national services through which the higher and further
education community can access the collective output of e-print papers
available from compliant Open Archive repositories, particularly those
provided by UK universities and colleges. e-Prints UK will benefit from
the RDN partners' expertise in developing services tailored for particular
subject audiences, the considerable user base visiting existing RDN
services and the ongoing work of the JISC funded Subject Portals Project.
e-Prints UK is a collaboration between the Resource Discovery Network
(RDN), OCLC and the University of Southampton.
