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.
