  • *PurposeInformation on how to find scientific materials effectively & efficiently in Cambodia

  • * Target groups

    Researchers in developing countries. Several access programmes use them or loose them!

    Any researcher spread the word about the existence of these resources!

    Generally speaking, underusage is a bigger problem than lack of access!

  • *Content?

    Bibliographic databases

    Preprints/e-prints/postprints (arXiv).

    Journals; Open Access, Retroactive Digitization, Subsidized Access, Document Delivery

  • Wiki

    http://acdcwiki.net/

  • New opportunities through e-resources

    The researchers have a much better access to scientific literature

    Lower price (< 5% of list price)Access to backfilesNational access common

  • New problems through e-resources

    e-resources demands:electricityinternet connection (bandwidth)local networkcomputersskills to use the e-resources

  • The importance of reference databases

    Not second class researchers!

    Try to find the right references!

    Try (at all expense?) to find the papers!
