ESO Information Repository
Starting in 2019, the Library will implement and administer an ESO-wide Information Repository, to enable controlled processes and practices for the creation, review, modification, issuance, distribution and accessibility of documents.
It will be accessible to ESO staff and authorized external users. We will keep you informed about its developments in the coming months.
