The Dag Hammarskjöld Library welcomed Ms. Devika Seecharran McWalters from World Bank Publications to present the World Bank eLibrary, a subscription-based database designed to inform the work of researchers and substantive experts available via the Library. Permanent Mission staff and colleagues from DESA, DGACM, DPO, UNDSS and DGC in attendance showed a lot of interest in the eLibrary and the systems World Bank uses to publish open data and documents. Devika explained the differences between the open source platforms (World Bank Open Knowledge Repository and World Bank Open Data) and the World Bank’s commitment to making information freely available under the Creative Commons licence.
