INASP – a values-led organization

In her last post of 2017, Julie Brittain, INASP’s Executive Director, reflects on the past 12 months – and the past 25 years – and looks ahead to 2018

INASP through the years: 1992 to today … and beyond

In my last post I wrote about the 12-metre-long timeline that is now adorning INASP’s wall to celebrate our 25th anniversary this year and I described something of the journey that this timeline shows. But, unashamedly, a timeline is more than an overview; it is full of detail about which activities happened in which year, as well as what was going on in the wider world at the same time. Indeed, even at 12 metres, we had to be surprisingly selective in what we included; a lot has happened in 25 years! You can explore our timeline online at www.inasp.info/timeline but in this blog post I’m going to share a few highlights from our history and put them into a wider context.

Learning and reflection underpin INASP’s strategy and approaches

INASP is a strongly reflective organization, responding to challenges by listening and learning as we go along. INASP’s new five-year strategy is a milestone along our learning journey, writes Philip Horgan.

Supporting the use of research and knowledge in policy making

INASP is known for strengthening the research and knowledge systems. For almost 25 years, we have been working with different part of this system so it can function as a whole: librarians, publishers, researchers, academics, IT services and their institutions in many countries. More recently, since 2009, we have been incorporating a further key component of the research and knowledge system: the policymakers and other users who need access to knowledge to make better decisions. This group is an important part of INASP's new five-year strategy, as Clara Richards explains.
