Resource:Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research

Name: Resource:Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research
Description: Cohesive, robust and flexible, pan-European infrastructure for digital repositories, offering sophisticated services and functionalities for researchers, administrators and the general public. Access the network of freely accessible digital repositories with content across academic disciplines with over 3,500,000 scientific publications, found in journal articles, dissertations, books, lectures, reports, etc., harvested regularly from more than 295 repositories, from 38 countries.

DRIVER has established a network of relevant experts and Open Access repositories. DRIVER-II will consolidate these efforts and transform the initial testbed into a fully functional, state-of-the art service, extending the network to a larger confederation of repositories. It aims to optimize the way the e-Infrastructure is used to store knowledge, add value to primary research data and information making secondary research more effective, provide a valuable asset for industry, and help bridging research and education.

The objectives of DRIVER-II, the second phase of the project, include efforts to expand, enrich, and strengthen the results of DRIVER, in the following areas:

  • strategic geographic and community expansion by means of the DRIVER confederation
  • establish a robust, scalable repository infrastructure accompanied by an open source software package D-Net
  • broader coverage of content through the use of enhanced publications
  • advanced end-user functionality to support scientific exploration of complex digital objects
  • larger outreach and advocacy programs
  • continued repository support
  • guidelines for interoperability in the larger European digital library community
