CERL Portal organisation

The CERL Portal was developed under the responsibility of the CERL Board and Committee, under the supervision first by Ivan Boserup, Royal Danish Library and later by Stefan Anderson, also from the Royal Danish Library. The Portal was technically developed by the Electronic Publishing Centre, hosted by the University Library of Uppsala (Sweden).


CERL aimed to add approximately five new databases to the CERL Portal every year. Databases that were of interest

  • contain records of (Western) manuscripts of all times, possibly in conjunction with early prints;
  • are harvestable by OAI protocol, or accessible through the Z39.50 protocol.

File owners were asked to invest some staff time when the database was first added to the Portal. Subsequently, the automated process of harvesting, or access by Z39.50 protocol, needed to remain supported.

Memorandum of Agreement

The Memorandum of Agreement defined all rights of both CERL and the data providers, including the provider's inalienable rights to the data. The agreement was signed by both parties before access to the data was provided.
