VIRLIB - Electronic Document Store (Universities of Antwerp)

The VIRLIB project's focus is on the development of a real delivery service of electronic documents added to Impala, i.e. the Belgian system of managing and transmitting interlibrary requests for loan. In other words, the system VIRLIB II will enable the interlibrary loan department of any scientific library affiliated to the Impala network to deliver directly to the users workpost, in electronic format, any article asked for by the user in question. More precisely, VirLib II will consolidate and improve the Acquisition module of the electronic documents (when a paper document is digitalized, it is automatically converted into an electronic document which the user can read) and develop a PDF server in order to deliver the documents to the user.
