Open Access and Digital Libraries

"I am back from an International Conference on Digital Libraries, 5-8 Dec. 2006. It was organised by TERI at New Delhi (ICDL 2006).

In one of the session there was comment that nothing is being done for "Open Access" movement in India. I feel this is incorrect. Lot of things are being done but by very few people. Yes, now we need to involve more and more people in this movement — LIS professional as
well as educators, researchers and policy makers.

A first step, I can think of is forming a discussion group. I know there are other groups as well — but these are mostly oriented towards LIS professionals. We never know what our target users feel about issues that may dear to us.

So a Group called "Open Access and Digital Libraries" has been created. If you are interested in Open Access, you are welcomed to join it.

The forum aims to promote and adopt Open Access principles for developing Digital Libraries which can be accessed by anyone. No intranets and no Login / Passwords — Simply Open Accessible."
