Towards a Repository for Dutch Development Organizations

At yesterday's IAALD/WUR meeting on the accessibility of agricultural information, colleagues from the Royal Tropical Institute introduced their soon to be launched 'Search4Dev' portal.

According to Ingeborg Nagel and Harry Heemskerk, the new site will harvest and make accessible a much wider set of outputs than is normally found in research and academic repositories. The project is a close collaboration with DPRN and their ‘global-connections’ portal. The Dutch national Royal Library will take care of the long term preservation of the repository content.
