UNESCO indicated they will be made online available sometime in future – as OA and CC.

Kind regards

Hi Ina

Are these books available "open access" with a CC licence?
If so, are there PDF versions?

Dear Colleagues

Librarians are encouraged to equip themselves with knowledge about Open Access, and also to create an awareness amongst their researchers (users) through training, workshops and more.

UNESCO has recently announced the publication of a curriculum for:

-          Librarians & Library Schools (set of 4 manuals)

-          Researchers (5 manuals)

See http://www.unesco.org/new/en/communication-and-information/resources/news-and-in-focus-articles/all-news/news/unesco_launches_open_access_curricula_for_researchers_and_librarians/#.VMC9nUeUflQ

Should you be interested in obtaining copies/a copy for yourself/fellow librarians/your users/library school, please e-mail: b.neupane at unesco.org<mailto:b.neupane at unesco.org>

Let’s all start preparing for our annual Open Access Week 19-25 October 2015!

Kind regards
