English abstract

The literature abounds with information on Open Access. Librarians rally to the cause as part of our responsibility of providing access to information. But what are librarians doing to further the cause of Open Access in their own discipline? E-LIS, short for Eprints in Library and Information Science, aims to further the Open Access philosophy by making available papers in LIS and related fields. It is a free-access international repository and archive, in line with the Free Online Scholaship movement (FOS) and the Eprints movement. E-LIS was originally founded by Jose’Manuel Barrueco, Antonella De Robbio, Thomas Krichel and Imma Subirats Coll in 2003. E-LIS relies on the voluntary work of individuals from a wide range of backgrounds.
