Digital Education Resource Archive (DERA)

About DERA

The IOE UK Digital Education Repository Archive (DERA) is a digital archive of documents published electronically by government and other relevant bodies in the areas of education, training, children and families. The IOE library has always collected this material in both print and electronic format. However the increasing number of publications that are available in electronic only format, and the problem of broken links and disappearing documents concerns us greatly. Our aim is the permanent preservation of all electronic publications within scope. Already well used with over 200,000 unique visitors per year we anticipate this will become a nationally recognised and valued resource for researchers worldwide. Our aim is to create a coherent fully searchable digital archive in our specialist subject areas. We are committed to making it permanently and freely accessible to all.

This site is powered by EPrints 3, free software developed by the University of Southampton.
