A quote from a press release titled Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Belgium sees a VITAL solution for their digital repository needs:
Blacksburg, VA — VTLS is proud to announce that the Universite catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Belgium has purchased VITAL as their solution to provide a digital/institutional repository.
Serving as a test site for the 2.1 version in their use of this new ground breaking product, they joined an elite group of institutions around the world. No other repository solution offers the combination of rich functionality, vendor supported open source components and powerful workflow and search tools.
The Universite has a long tradition of being a pioneer in the use of cutting-edge automation products, having served as one of the first libraries to use VIRTUA and later the first site to run a production version of FRBR.
I’m not sure what they mean by “the first site to run a production version of FRBR.” I went to Catalogue des Bibliothèques de l’UCL and searched and looked at some Alexandre Dumas books, but didn’t see anything FRBRish. My French isn’t that good, though. Perhaps one of you who reads French can investigate? Maybe it’s just vendor hype.
