The University of Bergen Library are working dilligently to promote open access to knowledge. This week, the library represented by project leader Ane Landøy hosts a study trip from Yerevan, in the project "Developing a sustainable platform for open access publishing in Armenia", where UiB is partner. The project period is 2018-2019, and will support our Armenian colleagues in the development of Armenian research archives and institutional repositories. At UiB we have BORA (Bergen Open Research Archive), which is a good example.

The study trip also includes a visit at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences Library, and the Library at the Norwegian School of Economics, to share their experiences.
