Springer Partners With Qatar National Library

Springer Science+Business Media signed an agreement with the Qatar National Library (QNL) granting Qatar residents access to ebooks and ejournals on SpringerLink, Springer’s database of electronic scientific content.

QNL, a member of the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, “managed to open a library digitally first, while other national libraries have been doing it the other way round,” according to Claudia Lux, project director at QNL. “We consider that access of knowledge is very important for the business in the region and for the entire community,” she says.

Anyone with a valid Qatari ID or residence permit may register to join the library for free, where they can access SpringerLink. The library offers training sessions to familiarize users with Springer’s platform.

Lux hopes the agreement will help Qatar’s researchers “unlock their scientific potential and develop the skills that will support their participation in the global knowledge economy.”
