    Connecting HKH libraries (first discussed in 2003)Couldn’t start
    technologies
    funding
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • HUC Libraries
    Interface
    Access HUC libraries from anywhere any time
    with any device
    Ideally!
