Dear eIFL coordinators and members of the eIFL-OA list,
At the last General Assembly it was obvious that there is so much we have to share and there is still so much to be done. We already have a full time Manager for eIFL-IP and eIFL -FOSS. Susan Veldsman was spending part of her time on Negotiations and another part of her time on the development of the Open Access and Institutional repositories program. eIFL.net also greatly benefitted from the time allocated by Melissa Hagemann to Open Access advocacy in developing countries.
As the list of our publisher partners is growing and there is still so much to be done in making best use of these resources and identiying barriers that hinder the use of e-resources in some of our countries, we decided that eIFL Negotiations program should have a full time Manager and who better but Susan Veldsman, will be spending all her time and energy on this program.
For the eIFL-OA program we were able to recruit Iryna Kuchma from Ukraine to take the position of a full time Manager. She will take forward work that had been done by Susan on IRs and develop OA Advocacy program. Her e-mail is iryna.kuchma at eifl.net
I am happy to report that each of our eIFL programs now has a dedicate program manager and we are ready to undertake even more activities than we could until now. We promise, you will be very busy this year.
All the best
