In this panel, we will analyze and discuss the transformations of rural heritage functions in the Maghreb from several terrains: Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. What motivates this Maghreb approach is the socio-cultural and historical substratum that Maghreb societies share as well as the issues related to the preservation and enhancement of their cultural heritage (Ahmed Skounti, 2009).

Assessing the Return on Investments in Grey Literature for Institutional Repositories

Joachim Schöpfel & Chérifa Boukacem-Zeghmouri
A main feature of usage statistics is their benefits for an evaluation of return on investment, especially in the era of big deals between academic libraries, consortia and publishers.

Degrees of Openness: Grey Literature in Institutional Repositories

Joachim Schopfel & Helene Prost
In spite of the growing success of the open access initiative, a significant part of scientific and technical information remains unavailable on the web or circulates with restrictions. Even in institutional repositories created to disseminate the scientific production of an academic institution, broad and open access to more or less important sectors of the scientific production is restricted. In order to provide new empirical evidence, 25 large institutional repositories from different continents were selected in...
