Brief project description: The project will establish, populate and promote an institutional repository service which will house and provide access to pre- and post-prints as well as e-theses.
The target is to make available between 1,500-3,000 e-prints over the course of the eighteen-month project. The project will also enable development of the local infrastructure required to handle approximately 350 theses per annum in addition to any retrospectively digitised under the proposed EthOSnet service.
