Springer Grants Haitian Students and Researchers Free Access

By Theresa Cramer

From the press release:

As Haiti continues to rebuild in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, Springer Science+Business Media is granting 15,000 students and researchers in the devastated country access to its online platform SpringerLink.  Springer provides them with scientific content from approximately 2,000 research-level scientific journals including French-language editions and the state-of-the-art book series Lecture Notes in Computer Science and Lecture Notes in Mathematics.  Access to journal articles and eBook content ranges from the current year back to 1997...

Access to Springer content is temporarily free of charge as ‘help for self-help’ to all users of the State University of Haiti for an initial period from 2011 to 2013.  Thereafter, Springer will undertake a thorough review of the usage and impact this access has had for all the users in Haiti.
