The father of the ETD movement, Professor Ed Fox of Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech), explains the acronym as containing an implicit Boolean ‘OR’: ‘ETs’ <i>OR</i> ‘EDs’ equals ‘ETDs’. This makes for a very convenient shorthand, whereby a digital object which is either an electronic thesis or an electronic dissertation can be referred to as ‘an ETD’.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue32/theses-dissertations" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue32 feature article john maccoll british library jisc oai robert gordon university university of edinburgh daedalus archives bibliographic data born digital cataloguing data database digital library digitisation dissemination ejournal electronic theses eprints file format html infrastructure intellectual property interoperability metadata oai-pmh open archives initiative open source openurl research schema search technology software url virtual research environment web services xml xml schema z39.50 Sun, 07 Jul 2002 23:00:00 +0000 editor 891 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Setting up an Institutional E-Print Archive http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue31/eprint-archives <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue31/eprint-archives#author1">Stephen Pinfield</a>, <a href="/issue31/eprint-archives#author2">Mike Gardner</a>, and <a href="/issue31/eprint-archives#author3">John MacColl</a> with some practical advice on setting up an e-print archive.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>This article outlines some of the main stages in setting up an institutional e-print archive. It is based on experiences at the universities of Edinburgh and Nottingham which have both recently developed pilot e-print servers(<a href="#1">1</a>). It is not the intention here to present arguments in favour of open access e-print archives – this has been done elsewhere(<a href="#2">2</a>). Rather, it is hoped to present give an account of some of the practical issues that arise in the early stages of establishing an archive in a higher education institution.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue31/eprint-archives" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue31 feature article john maccoll mike gardner stephen pinfield cornell university d-lib magazine jisc oai oais university of edinburgh university of nottingham university of southampton accessibility apache archives ascii collection development controlled vocabularies copyright data database digital library digital preservation dissemination document format dublin core eprints file format framework higher education html intellectual property interoperability latex ldap linux metadata mysql open access open archives initiative passwords perl preservation rae repositories research search technology software standards url vocabularies web development Wed, 10 Apr 2002 23:00:00 +0000 editor 865 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk ACM / IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue29/maccoll <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue29/maccoll#author1">John MacColl</a> reports on a selection of the papers given at this conference in Roanoake, Virginia, June 24-28 2001.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>This report covers a selection of the papers at the above conference, from those which I chose and was able to attend in a three-strand conference held over three days (with two additional days for workshops, which I did not attend).
