Project description

EXPLOIT is an accompanying measure designed to promote the results of EU library projects (both FP3 and FP4) and to facilitate their take-up by the market of library and information systems. The activities foreseen include special events for raising awareness among professionals in CEE countries that will accede to the EU in coming years.
Technical approach

Specific measures include:
  • Analysis and clustering of project results;
  • development of presentation modules;
  • starting an electronic journal (on the Web) with a priority on inviting contributions from EU funded library (and related) projects;
  • setting up a database of national and international library (and related) projects;
  • a series of Exploitation Workshops to be held in conjunction with major European events in the libraries and related sectors in EU countries (e.g. the Frankfurt Book Fair);
  • the facilitation of additional presentations at national events.

Key issues

  • Dissemination and exploitation of project results;
  • raising awareness of the benefit of pan-European cooperation among library and information professionals;
  • liaising with all parties concerned (related projects, actions, groups, etc) in oder to create synergy effects.
Impact, users and expected results

EXPLOIT will contribute to increasing the overall impact of the Telematics for Libraries programme both in EU/EEA member states and in CEE countries.

Expected outcomes include:

  • extensions of Libraries Programme projects and actions and wider take-up of results emerging from the Libraries Programme;
  • intensification of pan-European cooperation between libraries and related sectors;
  • demonstrable debate within professional circles about the potential for implementing Libraries Programme results.
