Open Access in the European Union
The DRIVER Guidelines were developed based on the DINI certification in Germany and DARE guidelines in the Netherlands with requirements specific to those networks removed. DRIVER partners involved in other repository networks, such as HAL in France and SHERPA in the UK, provided additional input to ensure that the DRIVER Guidelines are suitable for implementation by the entire European repository community. The DRIVER Guidelines are available from the Support website. A Wiki page has been set up for the DRIVER Guidelines where you may contribute.
The DRIVER "Inventory study into the present type and level of OAI compliant digital repository activities in the EU is now available. The study which was managed by SURF, surveyed repository managers and associated institutional personnel on a range of issues relating to Open Access and repository development.
