AENOR certificates for R&D&I projects

The Spanish Association for Standardisation and Certification (AENOR) give annually to several DIGIBÍS projects the certificate accrediting them as R&D&I Projects.

The technological innovation projects by DIGIBÍS with their corresponding AENOR certifications have received extensive "reasoned reports" from the Ministry of Science and Innovation, regarding compliance with the scientific and technological requirements that have promoted the application of interesting tax benefits for technological research, development and innovation activities pursuant to the requirements of article 35.4 a) of the Consolidated Text of the Law on Corporate Tax, approved by Legislative Royal Decree 4/2004 of 5 March.

DIGIBÍS has obtained certificates for the following projects:

In the "Reasoned Report" of the last project mentioned, issued by the Ministry of Science and Innovation, the section "Scientific-technological assessment" reads:

"This is a project focused on the standardised integration of the creation, management and maintenance processes of digital libraries, as well as on ensuring their interoperability.

The DIGIBIB system is a product that DIGIBÍS has been developing for years for the computer management of memory institutions (archives, libraries, museums and documentation centres). Many programs of this type are adequate for large institutions. DIGIBÍS places great emphasis in making DIGIBIB adequate for institutions of any size, including small ones. DIGIBIB is constantly updated to keep its features up to date and maintain compliance with library standards and recommendations.

This is a type of project of little scientific uncertainty since library science is a consolidated science, with associations, procedures, standards and recommendations that are internationally recognised. However, it should be noted that this is a field with a very high technological level. Computer management of memory institutions represents a major challenge, especially for small institutions with few resources.

The problems faced are of great social interest. Memory institutions are used by a large number of users and in numerous institutions (universities, research centres, archives, etc.). This impact may increase if their services are extended for social participation and the reading of e-books, as the project proposes. Lastly, digital preservation must be highlighted due to its cultural importance."
