RedLink, RedLink Network, and INASP have announced a 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.’
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,’ commented Anne Powell, programme manager, for information access and publisher liaison at INASP.
