NEDLIB is a project promoted by the CoBRA+ group and supported by the
Telematics for Libraries Programme of the European Commission. The project
consortium includes nine European national libraries, a National Archive
and three main publishers. The objective of NEDLIB is to ensure that
digital publications of the present can be used now and in the future.
The project started in January 1998. The project will define an
architecture for capturing, preserving and accessing digital
publications. It will develop tools and define standards and procedures
required to implement this architecture in a deposit system of digital
publications. NEDLIB will take account of the requirement of long term
storage and retrieval as well as the terms and conditions applying to the
access of those publications. As a result, the project will define the
technical environment and develop test implementations.
