  71. 71. “The Open Access policy will anchor the University in its rightful place in the national, regional and international arena and open up the University for more global visibility” Professor George A.O. Magoha Vice-Chancellor December 2012 www.righttoresearch.org
  72. 72. “Working with students to demystify OA at the University of Nairobi and also in institution members of the Kenyan Consortium has proved to be one of the best catalysts for change. We have realized that academics tend to listen to students in matters of ICTs as they see them as agents of change in that they are more savvy, "curious and excellent in networking” and open to new technologies. To us at the University of Nairobi, students have been our trusted partners and they have played a significant role in advancing the OA movement. We are proud that in a span of a few months, the Vice- Chancellor has signed the Berlin Declaration in October 2012 and also put in place a Committee to draft the institutional OA policy in August 2012.” - Agatha Kabugu Deputy University Librarian www.righttoresearch.org
