EIFL’s partner library consortium in Kenya, the Kenya Libraries and Information Services Consortium (KLISC), in collaboration with EIFL, will host a one-day knowledge-sharing and problem-solving workshop on institutional open access repositories and policies.
During the workshop, repository managers from 15 universities in Kenya will share experiences, challenges and success stories in repository management, and in open access policy formulation. The workshop takes place at the Multimedia University of Kenya in Nairobi.
The 15 universities are taking part in a two-year project, ‘OA policy development in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to make more digital content available’. The project is funded by Spider, the Swedish Programme for ICT in Developing Regions, located at DSV, Department of Computer and System Sciences, which is part of Stockholm University.
