This work describes the effort of designing and developing a Digital Library System (DLS) able to manage the different types of information resources produced during a large-scale evaluation campaign and to support the different stages of it. We discuss, in particular, the design of DIRECT, a DLS developed to assist the work of the actors of international evaluation campaigns.
