  9. 9. Changes beyond the PL Manifesto Libraries are in radical transformations economically and technologically. Economically: towards commodification of what scholars create knowledge users as consumers knowledge as intellectual property to be monetized Which had a profound effect on the library. Specially escalating cost of subscriptions to journals and databases shrinking budget, and cuts in professional staff We are living in a world in which knowledge is turned into intellectual property, monetizied, and made artificially scarce.
  10. 10. Paradigm shift of Library's Identity Users increasingly value the library primarily as a purchaser of the information Rather library as a gateway to knowledge or an institution that will preserve it for the greater good. Libraries are depends on rental of information (licensed) Rather Possession of information (not owned) A large portion of the library’s virtual stacks could be emptied out at the flick of a switch, a sudden repossession of cultural materials if the rent isn’t paid
  11. 11. Guerilla Open Access Manifesto: Preamble Prof. Dibyendu Paul/2016_Guerilla_Open Access Manifesto 11 Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to keep it for themselves. The world’s entire scientific and cultural heritage, published over centuries in books and journals, is increasingly being digitized and locked up by a handful of private corporations. . . . Providing scientific articles to those at elite universities in the First World, but not to children in the Global South? It’s outrageous and unacceptable. ‘I agree,’ many say, ‘but what can we do? The companies hold the copyrights, and it’s perfectly legal – there’s nothing we can do to stop them.’
  12. 12. Guerilla Open Access Manifesto: Operative Part Prof. Dibyendu Paul/2016_Guerilla_Open Access Manifesto 12 But there is something we can do: we can fight back. .. . It’s called ‘stealing’ or ‘piracy,’ as if sharing a wealth of knowledge were the moral equivalent of plundering a ship and murdering its crew. But sharing isn’t immoral – it’s a moral imperative. . . . There is no justice in following unjust laws.

Guerilla Open Access Manifesto: The Fight for Prof. Dibyendu Paul/2016_Guerilla_Open Access Manifesto 13 “We need to take information, wherever it is stored, make our copies and share them with the world. We need to take the stuff that’s out of copyright and add it to the archive. We need to buy secret databases and put them on the Web. We need to download scientific journals and upload them to file sharing networks. We need to fight for Guerrilla Open Access. . . .”
