English abstract

Since the beginning of 2003, a new and innovative programme in academic information provision is on its way in Holland: DARE (Digital Academic Repositories). DARE will put an infrastructure system in place that will enable advanced services for the digital recording, accessing, storage and distribution of the Dutch academic output. In this way, DARE enables universities to better fulfill their own role and responsibility in the preservation and accessibility of the academic information produced within their own institute. Furthermore, it enables universities to provide structural support to their faculty in their scholarly communication and publication activities. DARE follows open, international standards to ensure interoperability, nationally and internationally. Digital availability, based on open, international standards, simplifies the further use of the information for various purposes. Examples are: searchable overviews of research topics, expertise and programmes, publication in traditional or new journals (including electronic ones), long-term storage and incorporation in digital learning environments. DARE is a joint effort of all Dutch universities and three major academic institutes, and is coordinated by SURF Foundation. The programme runs from 2003 - 2006, after which the activities will have to be completely embedded in the participating institutes.
