Data repository for European integration studies

The data repository provides access to a wealth of relevant source material for European integration studies from a wide variety of sources and in different formats (text, video and audio, maps, interactive material, etc.).  Sources are stored as digital objects containing the digital representation of the source and additional metadata such as information about the author, the nature of the object (e.g. treaty, legal text, interview), copyright information and, if available, other language versions of the source.

The data repository forms a core building block of the research infrastructure and is closely intertwined with the ePublications as well as the Services & Tools while building on the foundation delivered by the technical infrastructure. The data repository stores ePublications and also provides access to the source material (digital objects) that composes the ePublications. Services & Tools interact with the data repository in different ways  and are for example used to create and manage objects in the repository.
