|Abstract: ||PIMRIS (Pacific Islands Marine Resources Information Network) is a formal cooperative network of libraries and information centres within regional organisations and government agencies concerned with the development of fisheries and marine resources in the Pacific. Its aim is to improve access to information on marine resources in the region by: (i) collecting, cataloguing and preserving relevant documents in print and electronic formats, especially "grey literature"; (ii) disseminating information via new products and services; (iii) supporting the development of regional libraries and information centres through training and technical assistance; and (iv) cooperating with similar networks and institutions throughout the world, including IAMSLIC, FAO and IOC.
ODIN-PIMRIS is a pilot project that contributes to the objectives of PIMRIS, by focusing on:
• establishing a regional marine information portal
• creating capacity at national and institutional level to use & contribute to the portal,
• promoting of the portal as a valuable information source for managers and decision makers
During the first phase of the project (2008-2009) capacity building activities are focused on five pilot countries (Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Samoa and Solomon Islands). During the second phase (2010-2011) other Pacific Island countries will get actively involved in the project along with pilot countries.|
