This page is to list the entire of the EPrints assets. Chris and I perfomed an audit of all the assets we thought EPrints has some control over. If you can think of things we've missed pleased add them. The grouping was done in a very ad-hoc way move things to different/new groups depending on how you think they fit. if you wish to discuss this then probably the easist way is on EP-local rather than the wiki discussion page

This is followed by a list of assets we may like to have in the future.

OK. Chris here posting as WikiSysop as I can't remember the other passwords.

I think maybe the next step is to work out the audience for the resources.

Quick brainstorm of types of user:

  • Reporters/Media
  • IR/Open Access Community
  • People managing EPrints installs
  • People sysproging EPrints
  • People developing for EPrints
  • Researchers (using tools like cogprints maybe our ROMEO, but not specifically concerned about IR or OA themselves)
  • Potential Users of EPrints
  • Potential Customers of EPrints Services
  • Existing Customers of EPrints Services
  • Potential training course attendees
  • People at/coming to a training course

Also odds and ends like funders, but they are going to be reviewing what we provide for the other audiences rather than being an audience themselves.

I suggest for the purposes of keeping things manageable, we only aim to refactor sites related to:

  • People managing EPrints installs
  • People sysproging EPrints
  • People developing for EPrints
