Abstract

Access to knowledge bridges in part the digital divide. This paper proposes the integration of all the Greek academic institutional repositories into one, truly accessible to everyone who can reasonably handle a computer. Simple rules of search within this one institutional repository must be applied to permit the access to people with no specific searching skills. Moreover, this paper shows statistical tables of an on-line survey directed to an academic repository in Greece and finally arrives at specific conclusion concerning the possibility and type of an integrated institutional repository we should have in Greece, to bridge digital divide.
