  • 4. 1+1=More and better.
  • The benefits oflibrary consortia
  • 5. Promoting a culture of cooperation:knowledgeand informationsharing
  • 6. Advocating foraffordable and fair accessto commercially produced scholarly resources

9. eIFL-IP:Copyright for libraries

  • tomaximize access to knowledgevia libraries foreducation, research and the publicthroughfair and balanced copyright lawsthat take into account theneeds of their users
  • to raise awareness of libraries and copyright, and toempower the eIFL.net communityto becomeadvocates and proponents of fair access for all

10. eIFL-IP:Copyright for libraries 2

15. Consortium building

  • eIFL.netassists the countriesin thebuilding of sustainable national library consortia
  • a wide range of activities underpins this goal including:training events, national and regional workshops and meetings, individual country visits, grants, manuals, web resources

16. eIFL Open Access 17. eIFL Open Access 2

  • Focus for 2009/10:
  • Open access policiesto be adopted by research funding agencies, universities and research organisations in eIFL.net countries
  • Sustainability of open repositorieswithin the eIFL region

18. eIFL Open Access 3

  • Open Access Week , 19-23 October 2009
  • Advocacy materialsfor eIFL.net countries
  • Turning pilot repositories into strong operational tools ( open access resources create value through the impact they have on users )
  • Watching briefs onopen access to data and open educational resources

19. eIFL Open Access 4

  • Evaluation of Institutional Repository Development in Developing and Transition Countriesa cooperative program between eIFL.net, the University of Kansas Libraries, the DRIVER project and Key Perspectives Ltd

  • Open access brings more rapid and
  • more efficient progress for scholarly research
  • http:// arxiv .org/
  • Brody has looked at the pattern of citations
  • to articles deposited in arXiv, specifically
  • at the length of the delay between
  • when an article is deposited and when it is cited,
  • and has published the aggregated data
  • for each year from 1991.

25. Open Access Impact 2

  • Asmore papersaredepositedand
  • more scientists use the repository ,
  • thetime betweenanarticle being deposited
  • andbeing citedhas beenshrinking dramatically ,
  • year upon year

26. 27. Open Access Impact 3

  • This is important
  • forresearch uptake and progress ,
  • because it means that in this area of research,
  • where articles are made available at
  • or frequently before publication ,
  • the research cycle is accelerating

28. Open Access Impact 4

  • T he research cycle in high energy physics
  • is approaching maximum efficiency
  • as a result of the early and free availability
  • of articlesthatscientists in the field
  • canuse and build upon rapidly

Scholarly communication

  • Science isdynamic and collaborativeand it isimportant to sustain the communication processes , rather than simply archiving research results in the form of a single journal article

37. 38. 39. 40. 41. 42. 43. Open education 44. 45. Open Access

  • It is important to stress here
  • thatpublishing is a fundamental part
  • of the process of doing science .
  • Moreover,as a scientist I am not writing for money
  • like my wife, who was a professional writer at one time
