This article contains a description of the features and design philosophy of the software including OAI-PMH (Open Archive Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting), internationalisation of the interface via XML files containing all text used in the interface, internationalisation of metadata fields which may be entered in more that one language and an API for adding your own features. This article also discusses the costs of setting up an eprints archive, including staff time and hardware.
