Projecten in verband met elektronische documentlevering
Uitgevers en tijdschriftenleveranciers en elektronische documentleverantie
The second phase of VirLib started in October 1998. It aims to develop a real delivery service for electronic documents. The first phase of the project examined each aspect of the Belgian virtual library (technical and legislative point of view) and made a modular pilot system for ordering and delivering of documents. During the first phase of the project a first report on legal issues related to the virtual library was produced [in French : Project VirLib (CN/XX/A06) - Deliverable Report T10:Aspects juridiques de la Bibliothèque virtuelle].
VirLib II will "enable the interlibrary loan departments affiliated to the Impala network to deliver directly to the user's workpost, in electronic format, any article asked for by the end user" . VirLib II will also study the technical, commercial and legislative evolution of the diffusion of electronic documents. The technologies for the diffusion of information (security, format of electronic documents, watermarking, meta-data, etc.) are indeed in constant evolution".
The WP03 of VirLib II aims to make a study on the use of virtual documents. The first part of the WP03 will focus on the legal aspects of the use of the electronic document. The second part produced by the UIA will focus on the technical development on the use and the diffusion of virtual documents (authentication of the end user, integrity of the document).
