DRIVER Infrastructure & Service Providers
DRIVER, the Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research is proud to announce the software release D-NET v. 1.0. The first of its kind, this open source software offers a tool-box for deploying a customizable distributed system featuring tools for harvesting and aggregating heterogeneous data sources. A variety of end-user functionalities are applied over this integration, ranging from search, recommendation, collections, profiling to innovative tools for repository manager users.
A running instance of the software, namely the “European Information Space”, maintained by the DRIVER Consortium to aggregate Open Access publications from European Institutional Repositories, can be accessed online at: www.driver-community.eu (Search the Repositories Portal).
Examples of D-NET being used by national service providers can be seen in the Belgium and Spanish national repository portals. Other service providers have also expressed an interest in using D-NET including service providers in Slovenia, Portugal, India and China.
At the Second DRIVER Summit held in Ghent, Belgium on 20th October 2009 a number of presentations focused on the experiences of users in implementing and using the D-NET software and DRIVER Infrastructure to develop national portals and services. All presentations are available for download from the Summit webpage.
