PHAIDRA, an acronym for Permanent Hosting, Archiving and Indexing of Digital Resources and Assets, is an all-university digital asset management system with permanent storing functions. PHAIDRA provides a technological basis for the realization of the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities, which was signed on January 26, 2010, by Georg Winckler, the Rector of the University of Vienna at that time.
The University of Vienna has established the objective of providing members of the university (teaching, research, administration and students) with the opportunity of storing, documenting and permanently archiving their publications in research and teaching, and to make them available worldwide in the internet. The digital objects of the university institution can also be archived with PHAIDRA. For this purpose, the software provides comprehensive tools for the formal and content-based composition, as well as a framework for the creation of e-books (including born-digital materials). The use of keywords, abstracts, descriptions, classifications and thesauri including ÖFOS, PACS, EUROVOC, Getty, ACM and so on is possible.
