Approved in early 2012, Oman Virtual Science Library is the first of its kind in the Sultanate. It aims at raising the quality of research proposals submitted to TRC and increasing research production by providing local researchers with the latest scientific research publications.
The project, which is being developed by a committee of experts, is currently in the planning phase and is focusing on implementation plans and budget approvals in preparation for project launch.
Achievements since 2013 include:
- Approval and allocation of project budget
- Creation of Summon (electronic resources management system) and Open Athens (project management system) systems to manage electronic resources
- Access to the Virtual Library will be through the TRC Knowledge ID system and other affiliated organizations
