Hasselt University (UHASSELT)


Hasselt University is a small university in Belgium. The library is involved since the 1980 in UNESCO-IOC projects, mainly in Africa. Since the start of the IODE repository OceanDocs, the Library is coordinating this initiative to make literature in oceanography, marine science, fisheries and aquaculture available in open standards (OAI – metadata: DC – MODS – Agris AP)

Hasselt University will participate in VOA3R as provider of metadata and data (OceanDocs – Uhasselt repository) and repository development (based on the OceanDocs experiences), and also at a more limited level in the development of tools. The group has experience in tools to integrate data and metadata of different origin (Subcontracting UNESCO-IOC/IODE). The will also contribute to the project through the use of the expertise build up at UHasselt and in the OceanDocs community as part of the development and evaluation of the VOA3R tools and results.
