Times Higher article on repositories and SHERPA

There is an article on repositories, the Parliamentary Inquiry and SHERPA in a supplement - "ICT in Higher Education" - to the Times Higher Educational Supplement on 22 October 2004. The article, entitled "Sherpa path leads online" summarises the Select Committee's Report with a slightly different emphasis from normal. It draws out the comments of the Committee regarding authors' attitudes to wider dissemination of their work and regrets that authors "do not take more interest in what happens to their research after publication". There is a brief summary of the benefits of repositories and a review of SHERPA's work, although unfortunately it ends with saying that "Linking facilities and providing meaningful search capabilities are a long way off". The story is on-line at the Times Higher site but only available to subscribers.
