Online library of Compact resources launched

Compact Knowledge Bank will include copies of local agreements, guidance and policy briefings

An online library containing research papers and documents associated with the Compact is scheduled to open today.

Known as the Compact Knowledge Bank, it includes examples of local Compact agreements, policy briefings, research, guidance and publications.

The information has been submitted by organisations including the Commission for the Compact, the Office of the Third Sector and Compact Voice, which represents the voluntary sector's perspective on the Compact.

The online library is the latest scheme to be unveiled during Compact Week, which ends on Sunday.

The week aims to inform more people about the Compact, which was created in 1998 to outline how the voluntary and public sectors should behave towards each other.

"This first phase of the knowledge bank includes up to 100 files," said Pete Lambert, information and database officer at the Commission for the Compact. "In time, users will be able to submit their own documents, recommend and share links to other online documents and discuss the files in the knowledge bank with their fellow users."
