    • 8. Goal
      Link the libraries to give mutual access to informationPossibilities (depend on agreement and technologies)
      Metadata of documents of all (or some of) the libraries accessible from all other libraries(each harvests the others’ data)
      Metadata of documents of all (or some of) the libraries accessible from ICIMOD (ICIMOD harvests data)
      Metadata of documents of all (or some of) the libraries searchable from ICIMOD(no harvesting)

    • 14. Benefits
      Issue
      Research done in our part of the world is not visible due to difficulty in access
      After libraries are linked
      Access to greater volume of knowledge including grey literature and PhD theses(more efficient use of library resources, existing research become the basis for further research, hence contributes to generate new knowledge)
      Easier access within and from outside the region to regional research knowledge(helps publicise knowledge, avoids duplication and improves visibility, saves time for researchers)
    • 15. HUC Libraries
      Interface
      Access HUC libraries from anywhere any time
      with any device
      Ideally!
