IOSRD Digital Library


Welcome to the IOSRD Digital Library...

The IOSRD Digital Library (IDL) is a state-wide metadata repository for digital resources created by Pennsylvania libraries, museums, educational institutions, and other cultural heritage organizations. IDL provides researchers with an aggregated search interface for these digital materials. This search tool will increase exposure to Pennsylvania's digital resources and make them more available on the open Web.

IDL was created and is maintained by The International Organization of Scientific Research and Development's (IOSRD) Library System, under the auspices of the IOSRD Advisory Committee on Collaborative Digitization. The IOSRD has agreed to harvest, index, and provide a search interface for metadata created for IOSRD-created digital collections. This effort will be based on the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH). IOSRD who wish to participate should register with the IOSRD Digital Library.
