International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP)

Peter Burnett came to talk to our students about the work of INASP earlier today. His talk highlighted the reasons why INASP have an international library programme. It seemed to me that those reasons also contributed to why we have an IS/LS masters programme here at City University London:

  1. Changes in scholarly communication environment
  2. Information overload
  3. Changes in users’ expectations and demands
  4. Rapid changes in ICT
  5. Changing perceptions of academics regarding the future role of libraries and librarians
