SWORD is always enabled in 3.3.9+. If you set up a new blank repository
you should find the appropriate <link> entries in your home page.
(Obviously you need a user account to do anything.)

EPrints XML import/export is always available - it is just an XML
representation of your database schema.

For more information see:

(I realise now that I didn't actually mention SWORD in that page, but
that is the SWORD interface ...)

All the best,
