Copac Challenge Fund loading under way

The Copac Challenge Fund (an initiative jointly funded by CURL, RIN and the British Library to extend the coverage of Copac) has received the first files of data from the University of Essex and the University of Exeter. The data will now be processed and loaded into the CURL and Copac databases.

Twelve libraries have been selected by the Challenge fund panel to have their catalogues wholly or partially added to Copac:

  • City of London Libraries
  • Institute of Education
  • Kew Royal Botanic Gardens
  • Lambeth Palace Library
  • Natural History Museum
  • Royal Academy of Music
  • St. Andrews University
  • Tate Gallery
  • University of Essex
  • University of Exeter
  • University of Leicester
  • Women’s Library, London Metropolitan University

The data from the libraries will be added to Copac by Spring 2008. Further information about the collections to be added can be found on the Copac website.
