Overcoming barriers: access to research information content

peter.suber's bookmarks 2016-10-20

Summary:

"This report presents the findings of five studies (see page 5) commissioned by the Research Information Network (RIN) to assess the nature and scale of key restrictions on access to information resources of importance to researchers, the impact of these restrictions, and ways in which they might be alleviated or overcome. This report builds on earlier work by the RIN on discovery services (2006) and researchers’ use of academic libraries and their services (RIN/CURL, 2007) and seeks to address a problem identified as the ‘discovery-access gap’."
