"EPrints provided a flexible platform allowing us to adapt the software to suit our requirements in a short period of time. The support provided by the EPrints Services team was invaluable as they were able to understand our individual requirements as an institution. Members of the team have visited the OU campus to run very useful training and promotional events on a number of occasions. The support of the EPrints team has helped us move the institutional repository project forward swiftly, efficiently and successfully."
