Swan, Alma, Paul Needham, Steve Probets, Adrienne Muir, Ann O'Brien, Charles Oppenheim, Rachel Hardy, and Fytton Rowland. Delivery, Management and Access Model for E-Prints and Open Access Journals within Further and Higher Education. London: JISC, 2005: "This study identified three models for open access provision in the UK: (a) the centralised model,where e-prints of articles are first deposited directly into a national archive and then made accessible to users and service providers; (b) the distributed model, where e-prints are deposited in any one of a distributed network of OAI-compliant institutional, subject-based and open-access journal archives, whose metadata are then harvested and made accessible to users and service providers; and (c) the model we have termed the 'harvesting' model, a variant of the distributed model in which the harvested metadata are first improved, standardised or enhanced before being made accessible to users and service providers. . . . The study therefore recommends the 'harvesting' model [(c) above], constituting a UK national service founded upon creating an interoperable network of OAI-compliant, distributed, institution-based e-print archives."

Bailey, Charles W., Jr. Open Access Bibliography: Liberating Scholarly Literature with E-Prints and Open Access Journals. Washington, DC: Association of Research Libraries, 2005: From the ARL announcement: "The open access movement is reforming the system of scholarly communication by advocating free, online access to academic literature. This new bibliography presents over 1,300 selected English-language books, conference papers (including some digital video presentations), debates, editorials, e-prints, journal and magazine articles, news articles, technical reports, and other printed and electronic sources that are useful in understanding the open access movement. Most sources were published between 1999 and August 31, 2004; however a limited number of key sources published prior to 1999 are also included. Where possible, links are provided to sources that are freely available on the Internet (approximately 78 percent of the bibliography's references have such links). The bibliography is conveniently organized into the following categories: General Works, Open Access Statements, Copyright Arrangements for Self-Archiving and Use, Open Access Journals, E-Prints, Disciplinary Archives, Institutional Archives and Repositories, Open Archives Initiative and OAI-PMH, Conventional Publisher Perspectives, Government Inquiries and Legislation, and Open Access Arrangements for Developing Countries. The publication also includes a concise overview of key concepts that are central to the open access movement." ARL and the author have made a PDF version of the bibliography freely available.
