The Projects

A list of all of the projects in the eLib programme follows, divided into the original programme areas. It should be stressed that the programme areas give only a general impression of the nature of the work of the project. For example, some projects in the on demand publishing section overlap, in terms of what they are trying to achieve, with some projects in the pre-prints section.

The first three areas (Hybrid Libraries, Clumps and Digital Preservation) form eLib Phase 3. These projects started in 1998.
