  1. Licensing e- content & OAperspectives from the South of Europe Lluís M. Anglada i de Ferrer Consorci de Biblioteques Universitàries de Catalunya IATUL 27th Annual Conference Porto, 22-25 May 2006

  2. Schema • What is SELL? • Activities of SELL consortia • OA activities

  3. SELL • Southern European Libraries Link • Greece (Heal-Link) • Italy (CIBER, CILEA, SBBL) • Spain (BUCLE, CBUA, CBUC, CBUG, CSIC, Madroño) • Portugal (B-on) • Turkey (ANKOS) • 1st meeting: 2001 Thessaloniki, Greece

  4. SELL? - BUY! CLAIMS • Consortia of • Libraries • Around and • In • Mediterranean • Sea

  5. SELL members share some common problems, such as: • English as 2nd language no so common as in other non English speaking countries • an education system quite different from the Anglo-Saxon model • weak purchasing power due to very inadequate budgets • poor tradition in library cooperation • Not a very relevant role of the libraries within the university

  6. SELL offers a platform to its consortia members to: • set common goals in order to promote the special requirements of its members to information publishers • draw common policies • support other fields of cooperation aimed at providing quality of access and expansion of e-information for the academic and research communities.

  7. SELL Statements • 2001: • “Why some libraries and consortia are paying too much for e-information” • 2002: • Statement on VAT • 2004: • “New pricing model of Elsevier for ScienceDirect”

  8. Why some libraries are paying too much • Model prices based on ‘nordic’ countries • FTE non applicable • Campus licenses non applicable • University teaching based on lectures and studying notes • Universities play an occupational role for young people • A very low knowledge of English (even among the university population)

  9. Statement on VAT • SELL libraries pay the highest VAT rate for electronic information. • SELL asserts that: • scientific, research and educational e- information must be taxed at the same rate as information in print • it is highly required that governments apply VAT at either reduced or zero rates • it is essential to reach the lowest equal rate for print and electronic information

  10. Years of foundation • 1995 1 • 1996 1 • 1998 2 • 1999, 2 • 2001, 4 • 2002, 1 • 2004, 1

  11. Libraries

  12. Schema • What is SELL? • Activities of SELL consortia • OA activities

  13. Activities

  14. More licensed databases

  15. More licensed e- journals

  16. Optimal consortial deals • Core subscriptions • interdisciplinary if is possible • Full text • ‘Fair’ model prices • Clear & Sustainable • Based on small increases regarding previous expenses in exchange for more access

  17. Other licenses

  18. Licensing power

  19. Central money

  20. Central money

  21. South vs Central & North • Founded same years • More public and school libraries In C&N consortia • Similar level of activities • The most important e- resources licensed at the same level but more in C&N

  22. Handicaps Less resources Less central money Less tradition Weak library directorship Challenges Coordination in ‘big’ countries Extend licensing to research centers and other libraries South libraries (only?)

  23. Schema • What is SELL? • Activities of SELL consortia • OA activities

  24. Consortia and OA • Green road (IR) • www.openarchives.it/pleiadi • www.recercat.net • www.tesisenred.net • Golden road (e- journals) • www.racocat.net

  25. OA = opportunities • Make national scientific production more visible • Help universities to improve their research quality and journals • Libraries could be more relevant for universities !!!

  26. Repositories function • Increase the amount of information available on the Web and offer it in an open and interoperable way • Guarantee present and future access • Allow use and ‘reuse’ • In future applications • In different applications

  27. Type of repositories • Individual vs. Collective • Specialized vs. Institutional • Monoformat vs. Multiformat • Monofunctional vs. Multifunctional In the future we will have to use and manage different repositories: some of them local,most of them remote

  28. PLEIADI • Portal for Italian scholarly e-literature in open archives and IR • Collaboration between 2 consortia (CASPUR & CILEA) • Aim: building a national platform that offers centralized access to the scholarly literature archived in Italian repositories

  29. 2 level architecture • IR repositories in universities • Data and metadata • OAI • Portal (PLEIADI) • Collect metadata by harvesting • Metadata are filtered (crosswalking), normalized and indexed • PLEIADI = joint search interface & services

  30. RECERCAT • Cooperative repository of working papers • For universities and research centers • Collaboration between 2 consortia (Cesca – computing & CBUC - libraries) • Open access to full text under CC licence of Recognition-NonCommercial-Without DerivateWork • Open code Software: DSpace • Chosen by a work group

  31. RECERCAT • University libraries promote self archiving • Collect data • Introduce metadata • CBUC – Cesca • Defines procedures • Support the server • Guarantees preservation

  32. RACO • Open access portal for disseminating and increasing the visibility of scholarly journals published in Catalonia • Nearly 300 • Now 92 in RACO

  33. RACO • Open access to full text (some of them with mooving wall) • At present 16 participant institutions • Project economically supported by the Catalan government • Working methods similar to RECERCAT • Open code software: OJS
