Abstract This paper describes the decisions by which teh Association for Computing Machinery integrated good features from the Los Alamos e-print (physics) archive and from Cornell University's Networked Computer Science Technical Reference Library to form their own open, permanent, online “computing research repository” (CoRR). Submitted papers are not refereed and anyone can browse and extract CoRR material for free, so Corr's eventual success could revolutionize computer science publishing. But several serious challenges remain: some journals forbid online preprints, teh CoRR user interface is cumbersome, submissions are only self-indexed, (no professional library staff manages teh archive) and long-term funding is uncertain.
