"PERGAMOS" Institutional Repository

A successor to the highly successful Digital Library System (DLS) of the same name, Pergamos is the Unified Institutional Repository and Digital Library platform of the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA).

The "old" Pergamos DLS was originally designed and implemented in 2005 by the Libraries Computer Center team and was used for the preservation, documentation, management and promotion of multiple heterogeneous digital collections belonging to the NKUA.

The Pergamos Institutional Depository was materialized in 2015 and integrates both the self-deposit workflow of graduate / postgraduate dissertations and doctoral theses (ie. dissertations consisting the «Grey Literature» Digital Collection) and the digital collections that were included in the old DLS. In addition, more collections will become gradually available, along with new services and functions. 

If you are interested in creating a new collection within Pergamos, you will have to submit a request to the Library Directorate and Information Center.

For general information and inquiries about creating a new collection in the system, please direct an e-mail message to: pergamos(at)lib.uoa.gr
