Since 2008 the University of Liège as implemented an institutional repository - ORBi - based on a strong mandate. Every member of the ULiège must upload the bibliographic references of all of his/hers scientific publications and communications. The deposit of full text is also mandatory for scientific articles published since 2002. The internal evaluation at ULiège will only take into account publications deposited in ORBi. More than a repository, ORBi has become a tool to develop and inform on the concept of Open Science and Open access by allowing researchers to be part of the movement and to actively participate in the diffusion of their own production. By demanding authors to check by themselves the publisher’s policies and author’s copyright, ORBi has contributed to raise awareness on the unfair practices of big publishers. It has also demonstrated the need to rebalance a publication model that is no longer affordable by those who produce the main information. Additional tools developed by the ORBi team (statistics, request-a- print system, automated publications list) also help to give substance to the many benefices of open access (increase of citations, visibility, contacts and connections).

Comme bien d’autres établissements scientifiques, l’université de Liège s’est lancée il y a quelques années dans le grand bain de l’open access en choisissant d’emprunter la voie verte. En 2007 est ainsi née ORBi (Open Repository and Bibliography), archive ouverte propre à l’établissement mais dont le contenu est indexé et récupéré (moissonné) par de nombreux autres portails, lui donnant ainsi une visibilité considérable. Mais la particularité d’ORBi tient au fait que dès la création de l’archive, le Conseil d’Administration de l’université de Liège a mis en place une politique obligatoire de dépôt des références et documents. Ainsi, ORBi concentre dans un seul réservoir l’ensemble de la production scientifique de l’établissement, afin d’en donner la visibilité la plus large possible. Pourquoi avoir choisi d’imposer le dépôt des publications dans ORBi ? Cette décision a-t-elle eu un impact sur la valorisation de la recherche à l’université de Liège ? sur la visibilité des chercheurs eux-mêmes ? [less ▲]

ORBi, the institutional repository at the University of Liège (ULg), Belgium, is currently the most successful "green OA" tool, with a compliance rate close to 90%. This is due to a strongly enforced institutional mandate which has progressively but quickly led authors to realise all the benefits they could draw from it. A September 2015 survey has demonstrated the popularity of ORBi among the ULg research community. [less ▲]

Availability of an article on the Internet without any barrier increases by a 20-fold factor its downloading songs as compared to those in restricted access requiring a reprint request. An article is being cited twice as much if immediately accessible. It is a fact. Hence it is crucial, if one wants to be read (why else would one one publish ?) to deposit one's manuscripts immediately after acceptance (i.e. before publication) and to make them freely accessible as soon as permitted. | L'accessibilité d'un article sur l'Internet sans aucune entrave technique augmente d'environ 20 fois ses téléchargements par rapport à l'accès restreint nécessitant une demande de tiré-à-part. Un article est cité environ 2 fois plus s'il est directement accessible. C'est une réalité. Il est donc crucial, si l'on veut être lu (sinon, pourquoi publie-t'on?) de déposer ses manuscrits immédiatement après acceptation (donc avant la publication) et de les rendre librement accessibles dès le moment où on y est autorisé.

The open access movement gains momentum with an increasing number of institutions and funders adopting open access mandates for their funded research. Consequently, an increasing amount of material becomes freely available, either from institutional repositories or from traditional or newly established journals. Libraries can play a dual role in supporting this movement: Firstly, they can provide services supporting the deposit of research output in their institutional repositories, including support for making it widely discoverable via indexes such as Google Scholar and library discovery systems. Secondly, libraries can make open access materials discoverable by their patrons through such indexes, thus expanding their collection to include materials that they would not necessarily license. This session will describe the experience of the University Libraries of Liège in Belgium and Harvard. University of Liège chose a top-down approach and made it compulsory for researchers to deposit their output in the institutional repository—ORBi. To support this mandate, the library offers services that help researchers deposit and disseminate their publications. Both libraries—Liège and Harvard—enable their students and faculty to discover open access content beyond their library’s acquired collection via their library discovery system. The session will also address challenges that arise from indexing open access publications and how index providers and libraries can deal with such publications, especially with articles that are deposited in different institutional repositories or published in so-called hybrid journals that contain a mix of open access and subscription articles. Finally, we will discuss with the audience how they see libraries’ role evolving in this area, what challenges they are currently facing, and the solutions and opportunities they have found.

Set up by the University of Liège, ORBi (Open Repository and Bibliography) knew a lightning increase of the online posted references since its creation in 2008. The official launch took place on November 26th, 2008 and after considerable efforts on behalf of the team which manages the tool, and researchers who introduce themselves their publications, the contents of the repository managed to reach a value of 64245 references among which 38670 with full text. Working for the Library of Geography of the University of Liege, I found interesting to analyze the number of visualizations and downloads of the references (2005 to 2007) posted online by the ULg geographer’s, and the population interested in this literature. The highlight is on WHO and WHERE are the internet users visualizing and downloading ORBi references from? In order to detect the population using this scientific literature, we analyzed the user IP and their distribution in the world. The data was obtained from a MaxMind database. The type of population using this scientific literature: researchers, individuals, public or private companies was also determined. [less ▲]

The decision to build an institutional repository at the University of Liège was taken in 2005. It took 3 years to prepare for a faultless start in November 2008. A strong communication campaign conveyed the Open Access concept to the ULg research community. A name was coined to personalise the concept : ORBi (Open Repository and Bibliography, http://orbi.ulg.ac.be/), suggesting an improved worldwide audience. A special effort in internal communication was devoted to acceptance of the mandate. It appeared essential to make it plain that ORBi would offer an unprecedented increase in readership, but that it would only be valuable if all ULg members would abide by the new rules. Any mandate needs some coercitive persuasion. Rather than resting on advocacy, we linked internal assessment to the scientific production stored in ORBi. Those applying for promotion have no choice but to file all their production in full text. This created waves of progression. Since then, evidence for a much increased readership (about twice, http://opcit.eprints.org/) has transformed the early participants in strong advocates of the repository. 68,000 items have been filed, 41,000 (60,2%) with full text (only mandatory for documents published later that 2002). According to ROAR (http://roar.eprints.org ), out of 1,568 IRs, ORBi comes 27th for the number of references, 15th for « high activity level » and 1st for « medium activity level » (number of days with 10-99 deposits/day). ORBi is now considered a success by almost all ULg members. Its advantages to individual authors have become a better incentive than the mandate itself. [less ▲]
