Archimede is the third component of the Laval University Library Institutional Repository. It is an electronic document management system.
This component covers e-prints, pre-prints, post-prints and other research publications from faculty members and research communities.
Following a thorough analysis of available software solutions, including E-prints and D-Space, the library decided to develop its own customized application. Inspired by the D-Space model, Archimede is arranged around research communities and fully developed in open source. The system is OAI compliant, using a Dublin Core metadata set.
