    IFLAs Open Access Taskforce established

Following the endorsement of IFLAs statement on open access 
by the Governing Board, April 18^th 2011 and the subsequent approval 
from the Governing Board during the WLIC in Puerto Rica August 2011 of a 
number of key initiatives IFLAs Open Access Taskforce has been established.

The taskforce will work on the following issues:

Advocate for the adoption and promotion of open access policies as set 
out in IFLA's Statement on Open Access within the framework of the 
United Nations institutions (UN, UNESCO, WHO, FAO),

Build Capacity within the IFLA Membership to advocate for the adoption 
of open access policies at the national level, through the development 
of case studies and best practices for open access promotion;

Furthermore the taskforce will connect to the various organizations 
working for Open Access – as indicated in the statement -such as SPARC 
(US/Europe/Japan), COAR, OASPA,EIFL, Bioline International & DOAJ, among 

First things to be done is to produce a road map for the work to 
presented for the IFLA Governing Board in December and as well to begin 
collecting case studies and best practice related to how national 
library associations can promote national policies and programs to 
further foster the progress of Open Access. Please inform me if you have 
good examples in relation to this.

In cooperation with the IFLA Head Quarters dedicated web pages will be 
created in order for the community to be able to follow and contribute 
to the work.
