The Theses Alive project, conducted at Edinburgh University Library, aimed to produce an E-Theses repository with a view to providing a solution which may be appropriate for other UK higher education institutions to adopt. This paper examines some of the most interesting and involved areas of that project, including what open access and open source meant for it, and how the Edinburgh Research Archive, an institutional repository of E-Theses and E-Prints, grew out of it.
