The International Nuclear Library Network (INLN): Doing more with less! Thanos Giannakopoulos Nuclear Information Section 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. INLN objectives Promote international cooperation Operate in an environment of dataintensive science 1 7 2 Strive for low-cost, high-benefit solutions, promote open access policies INLN Point-of-need access to services 6 Cater for comprehensive content sources 3 5 Focus on resource sharing and best practises for nuclear information management 4 Contribute to global nuclear knowledge management Governance of the INLN Argentina Ms Verónica Wallingre Nuclear Regulatory Authority Library Brazil Ms Maria Betania Monte Alto Lambert CGTI/Centro de Informações Nucleares - CIN CNEN - Comissão Nacional de Energia Nuclear Web Coordination Group Ireland Ms Isabella Bolger Radiological Protection Institute of Ireland INLN Continual Service Improvement Mexico Mr Caludio Fernandez, Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares (ININ) Centro de Información y Documentación (CID) convenes online IAEA Library Mr Thanos Giannakopoulos 31 countries, 2 international organisations 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 51 nuclear libraries, documentation offices, university physics departments, institutions and nuclear regulatory authorities. | Argentina | Australia | Austria | Belarus | Brazil | Canada | China | Czech Republic | Egypt | France | Ghana | India | Indonesia | Ireland | Japan | Kenya | Libya | Mexico | Morocco | New Zealand | Nigeria | Norway | Pakistan | Poland | Republic of Korea | Russian Federation | Serbia | Thailand | Tunisia | Turkey | Uzbekistan | IAEA Library | International Thermonuclear Reactor INLN Information services Research support Requests for Information by Type (2014) Interlibrary loan 27.5% Document Delivery Document delivery Research Support 47% 2.5% Interlibrary Loan Current Awareness Current Awareness Guidance (alerting) 8% Guidance on nuclear 15% information management Members also exchange information, not recorded in the IAEA Lib. statistics.
