  6. The mission remains the same: Research libraries must preserve research

    output and provide access to it. https://secure.flickr.com/photos/nostri-imago/3137422976/ – CC-BY by flickr user nostri-imago
  7. Libraries should become major publishers (again) and the drivers of

    open access. https://www.flickr.com/photos/yorkjason/3265889476/ – CC-BY by flickr user yorkjason
  8. Help scientific communites to flip their journals to open access

    or start new open access journals following the the Fair Open Access Principles.* * https://www.fairopenaccess.org https://www.flickr.com/photos/yorkjason/3265889476/ – CC-BY by flickr user yorkjason

  23. It is unquestionable that there is a strong and growing

    dependency of research on software. https://unsplash.com/@toddquackenbush?photo=IClZBVw5W5A - PD
  24. Software is also a result of scientific work. Quality, accessibility,

    citability, etc. have to be ensured. https://unsplash.com/@toddquackenbush?photo=IClZBVw5W5A - PD
  25. The importance of software for research is widely ignored. https://unsplash.com/@toddquackenbush?photo=IClZBVw5W5A

  27. Ultimate access creates new problems: Increased effort to find and

    process information. https://www.flickr.com/photos/wheatfields/3921008904/ – CC-BY by flick user wheatfields
  28. Train skills to find research items beyond articles efficiently. https://www.flickr.com/photos/wheatfields/3921008904/

  29. And yes - compete with Google and build better, open

    discovery services. Together we can be strong. See Peter Kraker’s #DontLeaveItToGoogle initiative. https://www.flickr.com/photos/wheatfields/3921008904/ – CC-BY by flick user wheatfields
  30. Libraries must train the skills and build tools to find,

    connect and integrate, literature, information and data to create new knowledge. https://www.flickr.com/photos/capcase/4970062156/ – CC-BY by flickr user capcase
  31. Think big, think global! Work on the knowledge commons. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/97/The_Earth_seen_from_Apollo_17.jpg
