The production of knowledge for international cultural relations takes place globally in institutions of different type, not only in research institutions. In order to meet the information needs of experts, the Open Access community has offered so-called subject repositories since the early 1990s, which make relevant documents available as a collection. These repositories are still largely operated in the "Global North". How do they work? Can they meet the global diversity of requirements? What is needed for subject repositories with decolonial sensitivity?
A short presentation of the results by author Nora Schmidt, PhD, is followed by statements from invited experts and an extended debate. Experts: Jo Havemann, PhD (AfricArXiv), Avril Joffe (Wits University; ICRRA member) and Thomas Hervé Mboa Nkoudou, PhD (University of Yaoundé II; CEIMIA).
