E-prints becomes E-publications
23 May 2006
Entries in this blog suffered a hiatus due to the pressures before the start of our new semester 062. The first real taste of using Blackboard has resulted in few hiccups, although personal reactions are being gathered and will be reported on here soon.
During this period Bond’s new central institutional repository, e-Publications@Bond, has been deployed although we have yet to see the official launch. This is based on the hosted Digital Commons service and I have been able to put up several papers so far. I blogged about the benefits in a previous blog post.
Finally last week we had transferred all publications from the School of IT e-Prints server on to e-Publications@Bond, and it was time to close down the repository. As a test bed this performed well, and installing it in the first place on the latest versions of Apache and PHP was a major achievement.
