Susanna Lob (Manager, Special Projects, EIFL-Licensing Programme) will visit Kosovo as part of the Higher KOS project.
Higher KOS (Promoting Institutional Development in Higher Education and Research in Kosovo) is a project that aims to effectively and sustainably implement the principles of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) in Kosovan higher education institutions and to enhance Kosovo's integration into the European Research Area (ERA).
As a follow up to an EIFL e-resources/consortium-building workshop held in Prishtina in January 2013, Susanna will be meeting with stakeholders from the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, and higher education insitutions.
Key objectives include:
- Building awareness of the importance of libraries working together in a consortium, the benefits of central negotiation for e-resources, and the importance of access to e-resources for education and research.
- Gaining commitments to form, and participate in, an e-resources working group.
