Bibliothèques sans Frontières will provide Haitian students and researchers with latest research publications in spite of structural challenges
“In spite of all the achievements made last year such as building, the installation of hardware and professional training, issues with internet access hampered the library’s ability to deliver content,” said Marine Louvigny, Programme Coordinator of Bibliothèques Sans Frontières. ”While proper internet connectivity continues to slow down our progress, these last remaining problems should be resolved over the next few weeks and we are delighted that Springer has extended its commitment to this project in light of these obstacles.”
“At Springer we want to see Haiti recover from this monumental catastrophe. We are proud to be doing our part to help by extending free access to Springer content through 31-12-2015, which dovetails with the UN Millennium goals. BSF should be highly commended for establishing this ‘pantheon’ of science in Haiti, which will be invaluable to thousands of Haitian students, teachers, doctors, researchers and other academics,” said Alan Harris, Licensing Manager Developing Country Initiatives at Springer.
