A Distilled Guide to EPrints v3.2

Having spent an entire morning talking about new EPrints features at OR09, I thought that it would be great to have a really (really) condensed version of the talk as a public guide to how EPrints is evolving. I spent my last day in Atlanta reducing the presentation to just 9 pages - if you don't include the title and acknowledgements. The result is a brief account of all the features that make EPrints a serious repository platform: effective data model, flexible storage options, choice of APIs, support for the researcher's tasks, and reporting usage, impact and research information.

I'll try and update this as v3.2 develops; please let me know what other information you would like to see!

Thanks for a great Open Repositories experience in Atlanta - see y'all again soon!

  1. So its flexibility, insofar as installation and configuration is concerned, is arguably an added advantage; I especially like the fact that there is an Ubuntu package that makes the installation so very easy. I wish I could say the same about DSpace and Fedora (the experience I had working with Maven was horrible).

    I was so impressed that I even blogged about it
