EDIL: Electronic Document Interchange between Libraries

The main objectives of the EDIL project were:

- demonstrate the international electronic interchange of documents between main European library networks;

- using standard and widely available products,

to disseminate the results by an active pilot and demonstration stage.

Within the context of European co-operation in the implementation of networked library services, the EDIL project automated the transfer and delivery of documents between participating national nodes. The project experimented the electronic exchange of documents at several site libraries selected from each national network involved in the project. The project then evaluated and modified as necessary the operation of the EDIL system.
