Open Library Badge


Just in time for Open Access Week, Lib4RI was awarded the "Open Library Badge". Our commitment to Openness is now certified!

Open Library Badge

The Open Library Badge initiative creates an incentive system for libraries that pursue the concept of openness, by making their activities and offers visible to the public and the library‘s users. The Badge shows the library‘s commitment to more openness in science and society and it is awarded by a jury.

  • Developing and sharing Open Source software
  • Promoting Openness as important part of personnel development
  • Transparency with regards to purchasing costs
  • Promoting and uncovering Open Access potential
  • Making teaching and learning materials available under an open licence
