International Organizations Ask Elsevier to Withdraw TDM Policy

LIBER (Association of European Research Libraries), along with 17 other international library and research organizations, submitted an open letter to Elsevier asking the company to abandon its text and data mining (TDM) policy because it “places unnecessary restrictions on researchers. It limits their ability, and their right, to mine content to which they have legal access.” 

LIBER’s goal is to remove licensing restrictions on TDM throughout Europe. “We provide constructive alternatives in every instance, and hope to continue advocating for conditions by which TDM can become an increasingly valuable tool for European researchers,” the press release states.

There are now more than 40 signatories of the letter, including EBLIDA (European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation Associations), the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), the Open Knowledge Foundation Germany, SPARC Europe, and the Wellcome Trust.
