Developing nations initiatives

As per a previous message to liblicense-l, readers of this list know that
the LIBLICENSE web site has created a branch called Developing Nations
Initiatives, at:


There we have begun a listing of projects and publishers that make their
content available for free or at a low cost to emerging nations.

We *know* this list is far from complete, and that a growing number of
publishers, both for-profit and not-for-profit, are creating such programs
for some or all their titles.  Several of us who attended an e-journals
meeting last week heard publishers mention efforts along these lines.

So -- if you are a publisher of such a title or titles or project, would
you let us know?  If you are not but know of someone to contact, please
let us know that as well.  You can reply to this list or to me directly.

It is our understanding that at least a portion of the World Health
Organization's HINARI project will be officially launched soon, so stay
tuned for news of that.

Sincerely, Ann Okerson
liblicense-l moderator
