    BIRI Digital Coordination and Strategy Project

    • This is an ongoing collaboration project between the BIAA and the other seven British International Research Institutes (BIRI). 

    • The project aims to share knowledge and to develop a joint portal between all the BIRI, which will enable access to and facilitate querying and searching collectively on the resources of all the individual member institutions. Digitisation steps, creating digital repositories, and linked open data are the main topics for discussions in regular online meetings and workshops that are held to share know-how between the institutions.
