Repository Transfer from EPrints to Open Repository

Any institution with an EPrints repository can now move over to Open Repository with ease and convenience.

The University of Arizona made the decision last year to move their Digital Library of Information Science & Technology repository from EPrints to Open Repository. Our experienced development team planned the transfer to minimise the inconvenience to the university.

This conversion was achieved by exporting all of the content out of their EPrints repository, reformatting the data, and uploading the collection on their Open Repository. This was done so that all of the University of Arizona’s metadata and full text files were retained, resulting in a very smooth transition.

This collection is now available to view here. If you have any questions about this new service or Open Repository itself, please do get in touch.
