MDX (Learning Materials Online) is a cooperative repository that contains digital materials and resources resulting from teaching activities carried out in member universities. The purpose of MDX is to make the participant institutions’ teaching production more visible and widespread, thus contributing to educational innovation, on the one hand, and free access to knowledge, on the other.
What are the aims of MDX?
The MDX repository works with the free software DSpace, a program created by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the company Hewlett-Packard.
MDX uses the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) interoperability protocol, which increases the documents’ visibility since it is offered jointly with other international repositories.
MDX is a project of the Consortium of Academic Libraries of Catalonia (CBUC) and Centre de Serveis Científics i Acadèmics de Catalunya (CESCA).
