The world of repositories and open access is moving fast. EThOS celebrated
its third birthday last month. When it launched – on the same day as
another auspicious event – theses were held in paper format in the
university library and a microfilm copy held by the British Library. Now
those microfilms have been packed away, and an average of 450 people a day
download a copy of a full-text thesis from EThOS. With possibly the same
number again accessing copies held directly in university open access
repositories, it appears that full-text open access is here to stay.
