Brief project description:”SNEEP is a 6 month “rapid development” project to develop extensions adding further key Web 2.0 features to Eprints, and demonstrate their use in an Institutional Repository. This is in part a response to the recent recommendation by Franklin and van Harmeln that projects be undertaken to investigate how institutional repositories can be made more accessible for learning and teaching through the use of Web 2.0 technologies. The project will develop and demonstrate fully working models of web software to incorporate these functions into Eprints, and report on its outcomes and findings. The output will be made openly available for reuse and further development by the community.”
