Formatted Abstract/Summary
Australian research is increasingly appearing in digital form, but much of it is
hard to access. Journal articles may be accessible only to subscribers. No
clear pathway exists to the research publications posted by academics on
personal Web sites, nor to much of the digital "grey" literature, such as
working papers and technical reports. Even where it is systematically
reported, it is not made available in a national, searchable dataset. At the
institutional level, it usually metadata only that is made available, not the
content.

The above realities limit the research impact of much of academia's output.
The development of institutional repositories is one way to collect, organise
and make searchable, research that might otherwise be virtually "lost". The
University of Queensland Library established its repository, ePrints@UQ, in
2002. The centralised repository is a "destination" service, providing not only
metadata, but also the full text of preprints, journal articles and conference
papers.

ePrints@UQ is part of a wider project called eScholarship@UQ, a testbed
program for the Australian Partnership for Sustainable Repositories whose
aim is to examine and provide guidance on the critical issues impacting on the
sustainability of local digital collections.
