KeepIt! A JISC project to enable a diverse range of digital content presented by institutional repositories - research papers, science data, arts, teaching materials and theses - to be managed effectively today, tomorrow and beyond. KeepIt is looking at bridging the gap between the preservation community and people responsible for live repositories. The project is focused in two key areas; training about digital preservation and the relation to the repository community and the actual development and implementation of preservation tools in live repositories. In this talk we present an outline of the project, keys areas of focus and an overview of some of the tools already available which can be utilised to enable digital preservation in an EPrints repository. We also take a look at the partner repositories which show the diversity of the project in preserving more than just simple text based publications.
