    Free software is a type of software that gives freedom to its users. With the coming of Internet, free software has consolidated like alternative, technically viable and economically sustainable, to the property software. Languages like Galician, the gaellic or the Catalan have had a very little development in the world of the software of property by the limitations that imposes. In contrast, in the world of software it frees these languages have been developed with a remarkable success. As important projects of free software as Mozilla navigator, surroundings GNOME or the GNU/Linux system have complete or partial translations in all these languages. Free software represents an opportunity without precedents for the development of minority languages, like the Catalan, in the new technologies thanks to the liberties that guarantee to us.

    The amount and availability of information has increased considerably. As a result, there is a growing need for skills, not only in accessing information, but also in critically assessing its validity and quality. Consequently, user education has changed significantly and teaching information literacy has become a key component of academic libraries all around the world. The purpose of this thesis is to examine the current practice of training activities at Austrian university libraries. The focus is on the region of Vienna as it is rich in higher education institutions. First, a review of literature is undertaken in order to describe the concept of information literacy. Hence important surveys, standards and models are analysed. Subsequently, an empirical study is carried out to investigate whether Austrian university libraries have as-sumed the responsibility of trying to help students to gain skills in information literacy. Therefore, qualitative interviews are conducted with librarians who are responsible for teaching information literacy at university libraries in Vienna. The interviews aim at obtain-ing qualitative data concerning content, design and organisation of training programmes. The findings suggest that the current practice of teaching information literacy at university libraries in Vienna is heterogeneous. Various training activities could be identified, which are depended on academic discipline as well as personnel and financial resources. Further-more, the interviews indicate that there is a growing willingness to integrate user education into the academic curriculum. Moreover, an increasing tendency towards implementing e-learning tools to improve students' information literacy skills is recognisable.

    This study intends to a proposal for suitable theoretical and practical directions for more effective access to electronic information sources from the academic staff. The comparison of the results between United Kingdom and Greece will be very interesting because of the differences in the information access models in the academic environment, and the libraries' role into the diffusion of the information given that the difference into the development and progress of library science in these two countries.

    Technology has pushed human society from pulp to web page, from manuscripts to e–books, from leather binding to digital archives, to specify from store house of information to Information centre, Knowledge house, digital library so on and so forth including virtual library i.e. A library without walls. This metamorphism that is quite visible in life flesh and blood in today’s Library Information Centres (LIC’s) is a result of unlimited and extensive use of ICT. We must take up the challenge now. If we do not promote the public library as a key player in the networked information game, others will take over and maximum community benefit may not be achieved. The technology exists to start these developments and by having a vision of possibilities, which looks ahead two decades rather than two weeks, we can succeed. People will help the libraries if they are to benefit from the wealth of information in Cyberspace; help to lead full lives and contribute to society with all the resources that could be available. With effective use of IT, public libraries could conquer the illiteracy and ignorance in the Indian society and very near to achieve the level of transparency and equality in society.

    The past few years have seen tremendous developments in information production, acquisition, and dissemination. Budgetary restrictions in research libraries have led to a period known as the serial cutting era. The new millennium has also ushered in the concept of the virtual library with seamless access to an integrated collection of print, electronic, and multimedia resources regardless of their physical location or ownership. Research scientists, policy makers, and reference librarians the world over are coming together to introduce reforms to make scientific knowledge affordable. Providing access to information free of charge in electronic formats is a concept that is gaining momentum. Open Access is one step ahead of Free Access. Open Access holds promise to remove both price and permission barriers to the scientific communication by using Internet. The present paper outlines the features of open access and the two vehicles viz. open access journals and open access archives. A few current open access initiatives in India are described in detail. In India, there is a large opportunity for open access publishing but still the number of registered archives is very less. Indian scientific communities and organizations like Indian Academy of Sciences, Indian Institute of Science, Indian National Science Academy, NISCAIR, INFLIBNET, etc are now actively taking initiatives towards creation of institutional repositories and providing open access to their publications.

    Open Access Repositories enable free of charge access to scholarly publications. A new conception for the Zurich Open Repsitory and Archive (ZORA) at the University of Zurich is planned. The Open Access Team at Zurich is therefore interested in functionality offered by repository software and the boundaries to other systems in an academic environment. This document illustrates, based on the available literature and example systems, the potential of repository software in two directions. One is the perspective of Current Research Information Systems, the other one the perspective of Virtual Research Environments. It is shown that repository software can fulfill many tasks in both directions. But when it comes to specific requirements, as research evaluation or third party funds, a fully-fledged Current Reasearch Information System has many advantages. In this case only a strategic positioning in the scope of Virtual Research Environments is left for the repository in Zurich.
