Phaidra is a platform for managing and archiving digitised collections. Phaidra is the acronym of Permanent Hosting, Archiving and Indexing of Digital Resources and Assets.
Simple to use, it provides access to a wide range of multimedia objects like images, documents, books, audio, music, video, and teaching resources.
Anyone can search and browse the digital collections stored in the system. At present, items can be uploaded only by librarians of the Library System and, with appropriate authorisation, by University users and other institutions.
Thanks to a controlled licensing system, the resources in Phaidra can be re-used for teaching or research purposes without infringing copyright law.
