E-LIS, E-Prints in Library and Information Science

E-LIS is the largest international open access digital repository in the field of library and information science. With over 12.000 full-text papers, the following countries from Latin America and the Caribbean have collections: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay, Venezuela, Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Grenada, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Puerto Rico, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago.

E-LIS users can both browse (by authors, conferences, countries, journals/books, subjects, titles, years) and search (simple or advanced) the archive. Having browsed/searched the archive, users can then view the metadata associated with a document of interest, and download it.

Authors are invited to self-archive their work, to build up a collection of freely accessible and usable LIS documents, within an internationally compatible OAI system. E-LIS governance is ensured by an Executive Board, Advisory Board, regional editors and national editors, in total volunteer editors from 44 countries and 22 languages. E-LIS is managed in an open source Dspace platform. AePIC CILEA - Consorzio Interuniversitario Lombardo per L'Elaborazione Automatica provides the hosting and technical maintenance of E-LIS pro bono.
