DRIVER stands for Digital Repository Initiative Vision for European Research. The guidelines have been created in order to solve many problems and questions repository managers came across when installing and configuring their repositories. For every issue there are thousands of solutions, resulting in many different interpretations the way the content is exposed.
The effect of this is that the content on a global scale is not that Open Accessible as been expected on the local level, because service providers have to tweak the harvest procedure for every single repository making the effort outweighting the benefits.
To ease the pain for creating interoperable repositories on a European and global scale, these DRIVERguidelines have been created by experts and repository managers all over Europe.
