    Call for Plugins for EPrints Repositories

    Developers are warmly invited to create import and export plugins for
    the EPrints repository platform.

    EPrints is a mature repository platform that has a particular emphasis
    on interoperability. EPrints repositories operate in complex
    information environments consisting of mobile devices, user desktop
    applications, library environments, institutional databases and
    Internet services. EPrints is looking to increase its range of
    interoperability capabilities with more community-developed plugins.

    EPrints Services is offering prizes for new plugins submitted to the
    EPrints developers repository by January 31st 2008. EPrints Services
    is the repository hosting company that funds EPrints development.

    First Prize: Apple iPhone plus contract (or equivalent value item)
    Second Prize: iPod Touch
    Third Prize: iPod Nano

    You are invited to develop an import or export plugin. You don't need
    to be an established EPrints developer to participate, anyone with
    some basic Perl programming skills can join in. To get started
    download an EPrints LiveCD, which boots up a running EPrints
    repository with training materials. Support can be obtained through
    the EP-Tech mailing list, the EPrints wiki and the EPrints website.

    EPrints has a growing list of plugins that can handle requirements as
    diverse as importing publications from PubMed or creating mashups
    using Google Maps. EPrints supports insitutional repositories, but it
    is also suitable for individual student projects and research
    environments, as its import and export features allow existing digital
    collections to be used and reused in innovative ways.

    For further information about this Call for Plugins, please see the
    Further Information Wiki page or email lac--ecs.soton.ac.uk.
