Abstract

The White Rose Consortium ePrints Repository was created as part of the JISC funded SHERPA project . The Consortium is a partnership between the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. The three universities share a single installation of the open source EPrints software (developed by Southampton University). The repository houses published research output from across the consortium – primarily peer-reviewed journal papers – and can be viewed at http://eprints.whiterose.ac.uk/. Currently, all the repository content is openly accessible and our access statistics suggest a good level of usage, with many users coming into the system through Google and other search engines.
