IAEA Library: Challenges and Oppurtunities
As the traditional model of scholarly communication is fundamentally changing, the globalised dimension of research presents new challenges, and the interdisciplinary and comparative aspects of modern scholarship transcend discipline boundaries and put an extra strain on Library resources, the IAEA Library is faced with a number of challenges. Read the latest article highlighting the IAEA Library’s future directions published in the August 2014 NIS Newsletter.

Governance of the INLN
In order to increase coordination and collaboration among Network libraries in providing services to users, and ensure access to information for the global nuclear community while making efficient use of library expenditures, the Network established an INLN Web Coordination Group – its governance team – which regularly convenes online. The Group aims to direct the Network’s evolution towards a distributed and coordinated nuclear community, and secure its future sustainability. Institutions from Argentina, Brazil, Ireland, Mexico plus the IAEA Library, constitute the Group which works towards leveraging technology and information flows to deliver point-of-need access to library services for nuclear researchers.
