| The digital documentation center is a proposed cooperative effort between the American University of Beirut and the department of informatics at Ostfold University College. The project's aim is to establish a trial unit at AUB for digital documentation and electronic publishing and to study its viability.
The DDC project aims to contribute to the ambition of AUB to be the primary educational world-wide web site for LEARN, the Lebanese Education and Research Network. It also aims to evaluate the viability of a documentation unit as a support center for providing services and support for producing web content in a university environment. The evaluation of results will therefore be shared between the participants in the project.
The project evaluates the intellectual property rights involved in electronic publication of the digitized material.
