This paper discusses the analysis, design and implementation of an integrator system to share data between an institutional eprint repository (IR) and a University publications management system. The process of building IR functionality into the University system is described in the context of user demands to reduce data input to multiple systems, and the Library’s desire to increase the uptake and usability of its own eprint system.
