Schlumberger sponsors Lyell Collection access

The Society is pleased to announce a three-year extension of its Schlumberger-sponsored programme enabling developing country access to its publications. Anne Davenport reports.

Under this scheme, NGOs and libraries at research and educational institutions in developing countries are eligible for free access to the Lyell Collection.

The scheme is operated by the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP) a development charity working with a global network of partners to improve access, production and use of research information and knowledge, so that countries are equipped to solve their development challenges.

For over 20 years INASP has been working to support research and knowledge systems and many elements of the research communications cycle in 20 partner countries and 80 network countries.

The Lyell Collection is available to over 400 institutions in Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America through the generosity of Schlumberger and the organisational skills of INASP.
