DL.org Workshop on Digital Libraries and Open Access. Interoperability strategies
The European project, DL.org (Digital Library Interoperability, Best Practices and Modelling Foundations) is delighted to announce the Workshop on “Digital Libraries and Open Access. Interoperability strategies”, which takes place at the British Academy in London (UK), 4 February 2011.
Theme and objectives
The DL.org Workshop in London will gather international experts on Digital Libraries and Open Access Repositories (OARs), providing a forum in which to:
- trigger the multi-disciplinary debate about research on Digital Libraries and Open Access
- discuss the DL.org project results, and existing frameworks and best practices for interoperability within the communities of practice
- propose common strategies for interoperability: start discussing how to implement a mechanism for exchanging, sharing and integrating results between DLs and OARs communities
- create new connections and partnerships, and explore ways for a closer cooperation between researchers and the communities of practice

The DL.org Workshop (http://www.dlorg.eu/index.php/dl-org-events/digital-library-research-open-access-repositories/agenda-3) will address the interoperability challenges within the context of digital libraries and open access repositories, along the perspectives of content, user, functionality, policy, quality and architecture, the six core domains captured in the DL.org Reference Model.
The workshop is addressed to Library and Information Science researchers and professionals, and to the Open Access community. It should be of interest to those involved in developing interoperability frameworks or models, and those involved in the implementation of digital libraries, institutional, subject or learning object repositories, and associated services across a broad range of communities of practice.
This full day workshop will be held at the British Academy in London (UK), 10 Carlton House Terrace, SW1Y 5AH, England.
