The new CEPOL e-Library, the second phase of the new electronic network (e-Net), was launched into production on Friday 1 August 2008.

The e-Library serves as one place for all knowledge documents and replaces the previous separate CEPOL-eDoc and EPKN systems.

Users previously registered on the CEPOL-eDoc and EPKN systems will need to re-register on the new e-Net system. This can be done by visiting and clicking on ‘register/login’ at the top of the page. Users will have to be approved before they can gain access to the system.

Registered users on the new e-Net system have the advantage of accessing a range of complementary systems via single sign-on, including a restricted website, Discussion Forum, Live Chat facility and e-Library.

The third phase of e-Net will include e-Learning (Learning Management System) and Workspace (Document Management System).

Registered e-Net users will be able to access the information available in the e-Library, but the moderating and submitting functionalities available in the previous system will be implemented at a later stage, once the Governing Board have agreed on a new registration and architecture policy. It is hoped that the system will be fully operational in October 2008.

The previous CEPOL-eDoc system will be available to ‘read only’ until 31 August 2008.

Phase one of e-Net, launched in March 2008, included the website (public and restricted), a ‘Live Chat’ Facility and a Discussion Forum. The Discussion Forum includes a ‘public’ space but CEPOL is also able to provide upon request for ‘private’ Discussion Forums’ for specific groups of users.

CEPOL Director, Ulf Göransson, said: “To date, 500 people have registered on e-Net, and with the launch of the latest phase, we hope these numbers will steadily increase. The system is now technically ready, but there are organisational decisions to be made by the Governing Board to ensure we can utilise the system to its fullest.”
