Yes, the real challenge now is to fill these archives - it will be
interesting to see what impact the successful FAIR bids will have in
pushing UK universities forward in this endeavour.

I am finalising a local FAQ based on much of yours
to provide our staff with a ready reckoner of why ePrints is a GOOD
thing and should be supported/encouraged. I will also now be visiting
various departments and having one on one meetings to evangelise and
support the service from the ground up.

Best wishes,
