8 ePrints Document Formats html pdf –multiple pdf –redirected pdf PostScript ascii rtf

9 New fields added Public full text Preprint available Preprint URL ISSN Faculty & department Research group Unique identifier Workflow Copyright Prior publication Reproduction rights Persistent URL OAI rights RAE submission Unit of assessment Dummy fields

10 Subject Hierarchy Library of Congress subject categories Faculties and departments

11 ePrints Workflow Submission buffer –Bulk import –Self deposit Automatic to editor Editor validates information Automatic to cataloguing department Cataloguing department assigns subject & moves record into main archive

13 ePrints Services Main ePrints service – JeLit journal of eliteracy – ERPAePRINTS – Configuration files retained during upgrades A few changes to core code

14 ePrints Config Skills Set Perl MySQL Unix xml html

17 DSpace Installation Version NOT straight forward installation and initial configuration (~2 months) NOT straight forward upgrade!

18 DSpace Look & Feel Local JSP files permit limited configuration –Header & footer –Left & right navigation bars –Stylesheet Further configuration requires changes to Java code.

19 DSpace Document Types Animation Article Book Book chapter Dataset Dental elective Learning object Image Image, 3-D Map Musical Score Plan or blueprint Preprint Presentation Recording (musical/oral) Software Technical report PhD thesis Non-doctoral thesis Video Working paper Other

20 DSpace Workflow Sausage string More sophisticated by default than ePrints
