EIFL will host workshops for open access (OA) working groups and librarians from three Myanmar universities that are adopting OA policies and setting up OA institutional repositories.
The three universities - Yangon University of Economics, Yadanabon University and Yezin Agricultural University - will use the opportunity to finalize OA policy documents, ensure the look and feel of the new repositories, and the repository structures, are right, and to upload the first research.
Development of the OA policies and repositories was supported by EIFL.
EIFL OA Manager Iryna Kuchma will facilitate and present at the workshops. Kuchma will also meet with the managers of the University of Mandalay OA Repository (umoar.mu.edu.mm) and the University of Yangon OA Repository (uyr.uy.edu.mm/) to discuss further steps for repository development.
