EIFL’s partner library consortium, Kenya Libraries and Information Services Consortium (KLISC), will host workshops on open access (OA) and institutional repositories for senior management, research managers and administrators, academics and researchers, librarians, and ICT staff at the University of Eldoret. The workshops are supported by EIFL.
The aim of the workshops, which take place over two days, is to raise awareness about the benefits of OA, institutional OA repositories and OA publishing. The workshops will also address OA policy formulation; share information about OA advocacy initiatives, and discuss upgrading and customization of the University of Eldoret’s Dspace-based repository to enhance visibility of local research.
The facilitators are Rosemary Otando, Deputy Director, Library & Information Services, and Felix Rop, Senior ICT Technologist, both from the University of Nairobi, and Peninnah Musangi, Chief Librarian, African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF).
