Summary:

“On August 30 the University of Nairobi will host an OA/IR policy discussion – a one day workshop for the University of Nairobi to sensitize policy makers to embrace OA initiatives and advocate for OA policy adoption. Participants will include the DVCs, Principals, Heads of Departments, Board of Postgraduate, Intellectual Property Coordinator, ICT Coordinator and other policy makers. We intend to have visiting participants from Commission of Higher Education (CHE), National Council of Science and Technology (NCST), Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology and Ministry of Information and Communication. We will also invite the policy makers of Pwani and CUEA University and KEMRI as visiting participants  in the discussions on adoption of OA/IR Policies. This will be the first policy related event within EIFL funded project ‘Knowledge without boundaries: Advocacy campaign in Kenya for open access and institutional repositories’. The project activities include hosting meetings/workshops to advocate for open access policies to the top level managers/policy makers, librarians, researchers, postgraduate students, authors and editors. Starting from June a team of local experts in DSpace repository software will be visiting KLISC member institutions and assist them in installation, configuration, customization and population of their open access repositories. Project partners: Kenya Libraries and Information Services Consortium (KLISC), University of Nairobi, Medical Students Association of Kenya (MSAKE) and Kenya Education Network (KENET).”
