Thank you to the repository managers who have already filled in the survey,
and congratulations to the three eIFL T-shirt winners: African Higher
Education Research Online (AHERO), University of the Western Cape, South
Africa; Orion@..., Indian Statistical Institute; and UNAMSpace, University
of Namibia Library!
We welcome more input from repository managers in developing and transition
countries. This is the first time that such data about digital repository
activity in developing and transition countries has been collected, and we
hope this will serve as important resource for promoting open access and
repository development in these regions. Your answers will help contribute
to a larger overview of repository activity, and will provide support those
who have just started building their repository! The survey will take
approximately 30-45 minutes to complete. If possible please fill in this
survey by August 31st.
This study is part of a cooperative program between eIFL.net, the University
of Kansas Libraries, the DRIVER project and Key Perspectives Ltd., and aims
at creating an inventory of current digital repository activities in
developing and transition countries, at both the infrastructure and services
level. This survey has been adapted from the DRIVER Inventory study into the
present type and level of OAI-compliant digital repository activities in the
EU by Maurits de Graaf and SURF, and from the European repository study by
Alma Swan, Key Perspectives Ltd.
