Earlier this week, IReL, the Irish e-resources licensing consortium, announced a generous pledge to three of the SCOSS-endorsed infrastructures:
- Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) (Pilot cycle)
- Sherpa Romeo (Pilot cycle)
- Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) & OAPEN (2nd cycle)
IReL and its member libraries recognise that these infrastructures have been of long-standing benefit to libraries and their users. They are also crucial to open research globally. They therefore agree that it is in their interests to help sustain them.
