"The DRIVER project is a coordinated, multi-phase effort by European information scientists to create a cohesive, robust and flexible, pan-European infrastructure for digital repositories. The researchers have already created a search engine that regroups over a million ‘open access’ articles from 260 of Europe's leading institutions....The main technological focus is D-NET v1.0, which is a suite of open source software....D-NET is really a pioneer. It allows users to collect together open access content from diverse institutional repositories and presents the content in a uniform and openly accessible way."
