The EODOPEN project focuses on bringing European 20th and 21st century digitally-hidden stacks to the public forefront by directly engaging with communities in the selection, digitisation and dissemination processes while at the same time reinforcing the capacity of library staff with regards to dealing adequately with rights clearance questions. In addition, the project will broaden the scope to alternative delivery formats in order to reach an even larger audience, especially adequate formats for users of mobile devices as well as blind or visually impaired users.

EODOPEN project makes a sound contribution to the Creative Europe programme by realizing three main objectives:

Objective 1

To digitise and make available literary works from the 20th and 21st century otherwise digitally hidden to a wide European community, stimulate interest in and improve access to 20th and 21st century cultural heritage, including grey and scientific literature, to the broad public and enhance intercultural dialogue with the national, regional and local community.

Objective 2

To improve access to 20th and 21st century textual works for blind and visually impaired users and for a younger audience.

Objective 3

To reinforce the capacity of library staff and of other cultural heritage institutions to operate regionally, nationally, transnationally and internationally with regard to dealing adequately with rights clearance questions.


The EODOPEN project builds upon the partnership and infrastructure of the eBooks on Demand (EOD) Network, established in July 2008 and by now a self-sustained network. Just like the EOD network has moved from a publicly funded project to a self-sustained network, the EOPEN project will attract institutions outside the project and create a momentum beyond the duration of the project.

The project consortium is led by the University of Innsbruck and consists of 15 project partners representing 11 European countries ranging from Portugal to Lithuania and Sweden.
