April 10, 2017, Westborough MA – RedLink, RedLink Network, and INASP are pleased to announce the initial steps of a developing partnership designed to help make usage tools and credentials management available for INASP members. As a first step, the Zimbabwe University Librarians Consortium (ZULC) will be joining RedLink Network and adopting RedLink's Library Dashboard. The partnership is designed to provide access to these services to the full membership of INASP libraries.
"I'm thrilled that RedLink and RedLink Network can help INASP and its members move to the forefront of usage analysis and credentials management with our tools," said Kent Anderson, CEO of RedLink and RedLink Network. "We want to help libraries level the playing field, and INASP shares that goal."
Since it was founded 25 years ago, INASP has worked to strengthen access to, production and use of knowledge and evidence in Africa, Asia and Latin America, working in over 25 countries. INASP has worked with ZULC since its formation in 2001 and is now in the final stages of handing over the sustainable access to ZULC.
"ZULC is a progressive consortium that is very willing to work in new ways and with new technology and new partners, so INASP has been very pleased to make this introduction. We look forward to a very successful partnership between ZULC and RedLink," said Anne Powell, Programme Manager, Information Access and Publisher Liaison at INASP.
Members of RedLink, ZULC and INASP will be at the UKSG conference in Harrogate, UK from 10-12 April and available to answer questions. For more information, the full announcement can be found here on Monday, April 10. Please direct any questions to Nicola Poser, Managing Director.
