The SHERPA project of UK JISC has been investigating the issues of setting up e-print repositories. Many universities in the UK are building these. After an introduction to the state of the art in the UK and elsewhere, this paper outlines the reasons behind the setting up of an e-print repository at Middlesex University and describes the efforts made so far. It then concludes with the political aspects and tries to predict the likely future of academic publishing.
