Maria manages and oversees the library and information services that ultimately support the research programmes at Bioversity. The Bioversity HQ Library supports both staff at HQ and in the region with their research needs. We facilitate access to over 100 scientific journals on-line, bibliographic databases, e-books, and provide trainings on research tools such as Mendeley. The Library support also extends to the management of research data.
The Library staff are responsible for the collection and management of research data, and ensuring completeness and accuracy of the associated metadata. Library staff also curate the Bioversity data repository found on Dataverse.
