Phaidra, an acronym for Permanent Hosting, Archiving and Indexing of Digital Resources and Assets, is a comprehensive university digital asset management system with long-term archiving functions. Phaidra, as an innovative whole-university digital asset management system with long-term archiving functions, offers the possibility to archive valuable data university-wide with permanent security and systematic input, offering multilingual access using metadata (data about data), thus providing worldwide availability around the clock. As a constant data pool for administration, research and teaching, resources can be used flexibly, where continual citability allows the exact location and retrieval of prepared digital objects. The active access of Phaidra - saving and linking of objects (texts, images, audio files, links and so on) - is available to users with a mailbox account, usual employees of the University of Vienna, and to external persons or institutions who obtain the necessary authorization as well as to students with a u:net account. Searching and browsing of the contents is possible worldwide without logging in. Assuming the use of Phaidra is in compliance with the requirements of integrity, authenticity, preservation of interpretability, confidentiality and availability, the data in Phaidra is: archived university-wide, permanently secured, systematically input, set up as metadata (data about data), and available worldwide around the clock. As a constant data pool for administration, research and teaching, Phaidra enables long-term management of digital data, a flexible use of resources, location and retrieval of prepared digital objects - via continual citability - that are appropriately structured in particular through the use of a metadata design, developed by an interdisciplinary working group of the University of Vienna.
