Elsevier Foundation awards grant to ADLSN – CEARL

The African Digital Library Support Network (ADLSN), in collaboration with the Consortium of Ethiopian Academic and Research Libraries (CEARL) has won a grant from the Elsevier Foundation to build a national collaborative digital repository. The project will start on January 2014, with the overall objective to scale up and harmonize the existing institutional repositories such as the Addis Ababa University and Forum for Social Studies, to build the Ethiopian national digital repository. Other main activities of the project include training Ethiopian librarians to establish and operate digital repositories and provide information literacy skills to researchers. The outcome of the project is expected to increase the discoverability and usage of Ethiopian academic research results nationally, regionally and internationally, as well as foster collaboration and global research culture.
