From 20-23 October 2019, the Luxembourg Consortium Section of the National Library of Luxembourg (BnL) hosted the International Coalition of Library Consortia (ICOLC), which manages electronic resources for libraries, research centers, and universities.
Several projects were presented but participants learned about the pilot project between the BnL, the FNR and the company Chronos, which aims to transform the scientific publication process by connecting institutions and publishers with an automated management tool. The BnL will manage the FNR’s Open Access resources in a centralized manner and will proceed to the automated collection of data on Luxembourg scientific publications. This project will help the BnL to efficiently carry out its long-term digital preservation missions. The three parties signed an agreement on 22 October 2019 in this context.
