Subject: [BOAI] Open Letter to Elsevier
Sent: Wed, Jul 9, 2014 9:41:44 PM

As announced at the LIBER Conference in Riga, LIBER, the Association of European Research Libraries, along with 17 other European library and research organisations, has issued an open letter to Elsevier.
The letter requests that Elsevier withdraw its TDM policy because it places unfair restrictions on how researchers can mine content to which they have legal access to and how they disseminate the results of their research.
It is open to further signatories, so please disseminate amongst your networks!
Individuals or organisation wishing to sign the letter should forward their details and logo on to me: 

Kind regards,
