The Netherlands: CEDA Presents Digital Library
The Central Dredging Association (CEDA) has announced the newest addition to its website, the CEDA Digital Library. With the opening of the Digital Library CEDA provides online access to a wealth of scientific and technical knowledge on all aspects of dredging and marine construction available in its conference proceedings.
CEDA conferences are recognised worldwide as valued technical forums for presenting and discussing the newest developments in the field of dredging. All conference papers included in the Digital Library have been peer-reviewed by renowned international experts.
As an additional bonus, for most of the papers the corresponding presentations made at the conferences can be viewed or downloaded, thereby bringing the content of the documents closer to the reader.
While the field of dredging is constantly changing with new, more advanced technologies and equipment becoming available and new innovative approaches at a fast pace, there is still an enormous value in papers published in earlier years. It is therefore CEDA’s aim to provide immediate access also to those gems of knowledge currently only available in hard copy proceedings. Now that the electronically readily available content has been added to the Digital Library, CEDA will proceed with digitising its earlier conference proceedings.
CEDA is confident that the Digital Library will be a useful addition to the services provided by the Association to its members and the profession at large.
