Engineering and Science Library project

In 2020, the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) released a call for eArchiving-related proposals under the Telecom Work Programme. The objective of this call (CEF-TC-2020-2: eArchiving) was to foster the adoption of eArchiving solutions and standards beyond National Archives, reaching out to other levels of public administration, public institutions, international bodies, software companies, small and medium enterprises, etc., and different domains, such as cultural heritage, etc. Four projects received funding under the call.

The Engineering and Science Library was a collaboration between Piql (Norway, Spain), Airbus Space and Defence (Spain), and the Central Library of Slovak Academy of Sciences (Slovakia). It developed on-site and hosted E-ARK conformant archival systems with embedded Archivematica preservation workflows for science and engineering content. The project has archived 2D technical drawings and documents at Airbus and scientific manuscripts and documents at UKSAV.

More information about the project can be found on the Engineering and Science Library project website.
