Project Details

Description

Universities and research institutions in the developing countries have through the history suffered (are suffering) of the lack of access to new literature. A project sponsored by IFLA and Danida, Interlibrary Lending and Document Delivery in Developing countries, has been set-up with the scope of solving this problem. The project was started in 1996 to facilitate delivery of literature from Danish libraries to a number of university libraries in Ghana using new Information and Communication Technologies. The project is led by the State library in Denmark and CTI has been one of the partners in the project with the responsibility for establishing the necessary ICT infrastructure. Main goals of the project: 1. To establish electronic network links with a regional and global approach to improve universal availability to publication and information 2. To improve the competence of library staff in handling interlibrary loans and document delivery systems 3. To support negotiations with main document centres / libraries to obtain favourable bulk treaties
