What is the DDD?

The DDD, or Digital Document Repository, makes it possible to access all of the digitally formatted material found in the libraries. It encompasses a diverse collection in regard to media, subjects and typology of documents.

A digital repository is a system for filling and distributing digital material. The main objectives are:

  • Spread information around the world, by means of the Internet, about the results of university research.
  • To motivate the creation and use of internal scientific production.
  • Improve control of the bibliography.
  • Promote electronic publishing.
  • Increase the visibility of documents, authors and of the institutions that support them.
  • Add value to documents by standardised quotations, statistics on queries, permanent addresses and preservation mechanisms.
