DL.org Workshop on Digital Libraries and Open Access. Interoperability strategies
4 February 2011
A few places are still available forthe Workshop on “Digital Libraries and Open Access. Interoperability strategies”, organised by the European project DL.org (Digital Library Interoperability, Best Practices and Modelling Foundations) . The Workshop takes place at the
Theme and objectives
The DL.org Workshop in
1) trigger the multi-disciplinary debate about research on Digital Libraries and Open Access
2) discuss the DL.org project
results, and existing frameworks and best practices for interoperability within
the communities of practice
3) propose common strategies for interoperability: start discussing how to implement a mechanism for exchanging, sharing and integrating results between DLs and OARs communities
4) 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
