Are Librarians in Africa interested in pushing for OA issues in their respective libraries?

If knowledge access is important for development in Africa, how come so much of knowledge is inaccessible? University libraries in Ghana have difficulty accessing research work done in their institutions and in Ghana as a whole. This has been a challenge in supporting teaching, learning, research and knowledge dissemination. My colleague Librarians in Ghana should really push this year in celebrating the OA week so we can sensitise stockholders and policy makers in establishing OA/IRs in…See More

What are your goals for OA Week 2014?
The aimed of the week long program is to enhance the usage of library resources and creating more awareness of the KNUST open access institutional repository (IR), as well as to encourage the university commmunity to help populate the repository by self archiving and depositing their research publications. Currently the rate at which contents are deposited in the repository is very low.

The Open Access Week program will be geared towards realization of the library’s mission; to provide quality information services that will empower the University in carrying out its core mandate: teaching, learning, research and community impact. The program will also promote open access publishing to harness the sharing and dissemination of information and knowledge globally.

Thanks for your message Richard - your OA week plans are fantastic, and sure to reach many people! Are you going to share information about OA-KNUSTSpace etc via this webspace? I expect others would be very interested to hear more. Please pass on my regards to Helena, it was lovely to have a catch-up back in May.
