The Repository Support Project is a JISC funded 2.5 year
project to co-ordinate and deliver good practice and practical
advice to English and Welsh HEIs to enable the implementation,
management and development of digital institutional
repositories. The project is being led by SHERPA, University of
Nottingham, with core partners, Aberystwyth University, and
UKOLN at the University of Bath. Other funded partners are the
University of Southampton and the Digital Curation Centre. All
partners represent key centres of expertise regarding
repositories, and the project will build on their previous
national and international activity across the repositories

EPrints open source software is a flexible platform for
building high quality, high value repositories. It is
recognised as the easiest and fastest way to set up
repositories of research outputs of literature, scientific
data, theses and reports or multimedia artefacts from
collections, exhibitions and performances.
