European libraries drive digital repositories forward

Share this on social media:

The European Association of Research Libraries, LIBER, has joined forces with the European Digital Repository Research Infrastructure, DRIVER, to enhance the output of European research through so-called digital repositories.

Digital repositories provide access to texts, data or other types of scientific and scholarly content. The new collaboration asserts research libraries should contribute towards a common, pan-European data and service infrastructure based on such repositories that would help to make research information more widely available.


Having each signed a Memorandum of Understanding, the parties will also consider future developments in subject-based or disciplinary repositories. Collaborations with relevant organisations will also be pursued.
