New OA mandate and IR for the Académie Louvain

DIAL (Dépôt Institutionnel de l'Académie universitaire 'Louvain') is the new multi-institutional IR for the Académie 'Louvain' (composed of the Facultés universitaires catholiques de Mons, Facultés Universitaires Notre-Dame de la Paix à Namur, Facultés universitaires Saint-Louis, and the Université catholique de Louvain). (Thanks to Fabrizio Tinti.)

The history and context section of the repository notes that the Université catholique de Louvain adopted a mandatory OA policy on July 7, 2008, which requires deposit in the IR.
