ORBi (Open Repository and Bibliography)

In may 2007, the ULiège's Administrative Board (joined in June 2007 by the FUSAGx) decided to create an institutional repository and defined a strong institutional self-archiving policy to increase the visibility, accessibility and impact of the University's publications (ULiège mandate).
