ESO Information Repository

The Library implements and administers an ESO-wide Information Repository (Product and Document Management system, or PDM) to enable controlled processes and practices for the creation, review, modification, issuance, distribution, and accessibility of documents.

The PDM is accessible to ESO staff and authorized external users. We will keep you informed about its developments in the coming months.
