Also, LIBER members were asked to rate possible services of the aggregator (access to libraries’ repositories; enabling searching of hard and digital copies; enriching metadata and return it to contributing libraries; OCR services, etc)
  • EL: UCL was scientific coordinator and leaded the WP on the study of research library needs and new business model for TEL LIBER: participated in that WP; communication and dissemination Other LIBER members: content providers Identified the needs of the aggregator (in Tartu): access to IR repositories, search of bibliographic records in hard and digital format, OCR services for content providers, push data out to other academic services, enriching metadata (LOD) and returning it to contributing libraries.
