Per chi non lo avesse ricevuto DRIVER http://www.driver-community.eu/ ha 
di recente rivolto un invito ai curatori dei repositories a rispondere 
ad un nuovo questionario per aggiornare lo studio sugli IRs in Europa.
Trovate il questionario all'indirizzo 
http://www.pleiadesurvey.nl/cgi-bin/webSurvey.cgi?LOGIN_CODE=woqiluxa .

Di seguito trovate il messaggio in inglese inviato da Maurits van der 
Graaf, uno degli autori del volume the European repository landscape

Dear  Repository manager,

In the context of the European Union funded project DRIVER 
(http://www.driver-community.eu) we carry out an update of the DRIVER 
Inventory study of the present OAI-PMH compliant repositories for 
research output in the EU. We collected your email address and others 
using various sources in an attempt to be as comprehensive as possible.

The study aims at a complete inventory of the present state of Digital 
Repositories in all 27 countries of the European Union and Croatia, 
Norway, Switzerland and Iceland.  The results of the study will be made 
publicly available.
A Digital Repository is in this study defined as (1) containing research 
output from contemporary researchers (2) institutional or thematic and 
(3) OAI-PMH compliant.

I hope that you or one of your colleagues might be willing to 
participate in this study.
Please click on the following link for access to the questionnaire:

Participating in this study will cost you an estimated 20 to 30 minutes.

Why should you and your repository participate? This inventory study 
will serve as the basis for the creation of a common infrastructure for 
repositories by the DRIVER project. Thus, participation in this study 
will increase the visibility of the repository of your institute as part 
of the wider European infrastructure and help to expand this further.

Looking forward to your participation,

Yours sincerely,

Maurits van der Graaf
