The Academic Library – Information and Research Resource Centre
Libraries are no longer the only institutions whose purpose is to preserve and make information available. However, library services are particular and specific: they grant access to impressive collections of organized information. These collections were put together over a long period of time and are continuously developing and diversifying.
If traditionally academic libraries are intermediaries between external information and subjects of internal communities, when it comes to open access, their role is to spread the materials produced internally to the outside. Thus, the role of academic libraries in promoting open access is ever more important.
