Erasmus University RePub Repository Launched
Publication date: 18.November.2009, 12:30
18 November 2009 – Infrae is pleased to announce the launch of the improved user interface of the RePub Repository at: http://repub.eur.nl/. This website provides access to the academic output of the Erasmus University Rotterdam and makes it available to everyone, free of charge, now and in the future.
In doing so, the EUR supports the idea of open access to academic research findings.
This new frontend is part of a larger project that will replace the RePub repository backend software (also developed by Infrae). The new repository is based on RDF technology with meta-data stored in a revision control system and a RDF triplestore. The MOAI OAI-PMH server will directly interface with the RDF store.
The repository software will be available under an open source license once the project is completed.
