Nuclear Information Section The International Nuclear Library Network (INLN): Doing more with less! Thanos Giannakopoulos
A global nuclear information and knowledge management initiative aiming to strengthen international cooperation in nuclear information resource sharing Working towards leveraging technology and information flows to deliver point-of-need access to information services for nuclear researchers.
Promote international cooperation Focus on resource sharing and best practises for nuclear information management Contribute to global nuclear knowledge management Cater for comprehensive content sources Strive for low-cost, high-benefit solutions, promote open access policies Point-of-need access to services Operate in an environment of data- intensive science INLN INLN objectives

-Comparative and interdisciplinary nature of research – increasingly difficult to delimit the focus on nuclear topics from broader global themes (IAEA publications attest to this) -Big data -Rising need for evaluated and credible sources - difference between scientific activity (“good enough”) to scientific achievement (“exploratory research”) -Point-of-need access to content Challenges to digital scholarship -Comprehensive content, semantic web -User services (data curation, new research infrastructures) -User services (online or in person training, information analysis, new library spaces) -Information services rebuilt around user work-flows (sophisticated linking technologies, interconnectedness of web- scale library systems, discoverability) (nuclear) Library actions THEN: Resources were scarce and time was abundant NOW: Resources are abundant and time is scarce
