Study on TEL project

The Journal of Documentation published in its October 2005 issue a study on the business plan of The European Library (TEL) project by Mel Collier, a researcher from the Northumbria University in the United Kingdom.

TEL project was the first phase of creating and developing The European Library service. It started in 2001 and was completed in January 2004. The current TEL-ME-MOR project is building on the achievements of TEL project, helping New Member States of the European Union to become involved in The European Library.

The purpose of the above mentioned study is to describe the process and results of the business-planning work package of TEL project, in which eight national libraries collaborated on a joint approach to access their digital libraries. The study paper titled The business aims of eight national libraries in digital library co-operation can be accessed via the Emerald FullText service.

In April and May 2006 TEL-ME-MOR will hold three Regional Expert Workshops in Poland, Hungary and Slovenia. The events will discuss research requirements in the New Member States, aimed to encourage a greater participation of these countries in future European research projects. The overall goal of the workshops is to formulate recommendations as to how the EU Research & Development agenda can lead to improving access to cultural and scientific resources by the research and education sectors in the New Member States, via participation in future EU-funded projects.
