Abstract or Summary
  • As a profession, librarians have proclaimed an ethical duty to ensure access to information for all people. However, many barriers exist to fulfilling this duty, including varying levels of education and technology around the globe, the cost of obtaining research information, and the concentration of scholarly publishing in English. This article outlines these barriers, concluding with a call to action for librarians to advocate for multilingual Open Access, to foster international scholarly communities, and to champion Internet access for all.
  • 简介:作为一个行业,图书馆员一直将所有人能够接入信息当作道德责任。但是,存在很多障碍, 包括全球不同教育与技术层次, 取得科研信息的费用,以及论文出版集中使用英语。本论文列出这些障碍,总结图书馆员应支持多语种开放接入,国际学术交流,以及主导所有人接入互联网。
  • A nivel profesional los bibliotecarios han proclamado un responsabilidad ética que asegure acceso a la información a la población entera. Aún así existen muchas barreras para cumplir este cometido, entre ellos distintos niveles educativos y tecnológicos alrededor del planeta, costes a la hora de obtener información de investigación y concentración de publicaciones académicas en inglés. Éste artículo da una idea general de cuáles son estas barreras, concluyendo con un llamamiento a los bibliotecarios a actuar promocionando un Acceso Abierto multilingüe, impulsando comunidades académicas internacionales y abogando por el acceso a Internet para todo el mundo.
