EPrints 3 Reference: Directory Structure - Metadata Fields - Repository Configuration - XML Config Files - XML Export Format - EPrints data structure - Core API - Data Objects


Editing the contents of this directory is not recommended. See Read Only Directories.

This is a list of almost all the EPrints perl modules. We've not expanded the Plugins and MetaField directories as these are pretty big.
