Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


2009 represents the 10th birthday of EPrints and, more importantly, the start of the second decade of EPrints. 10 years of digital preservation is a substantial amount of time and in this presentation we look back on some of the main successes as well as the key lessons learned during the development of the EPrints platform. Building on 10 years of experience allows us to move forward with confidence into new areas of research, adding to, enhancing and refining the EPrints platform. From the view point of digital preservation we look at the key decisions made during the development of EPrints and how these are still affecting the development of the platform even today.
