The responsibilities and freedoms of universities and their impact on information resource policy at the university of Grenoble

The university of Grenoble is currently facing a number of significant changes, including the LRU, major renovations as part of the government’s Plan Campus, and the creation of a PRES with the status of a public establishment for scientific collaboration. While it is still too early to assess the outcome of these changes, particularly in terms of information resources, the impact of widening the responsibilities and remit of universities on budget and human resource management can be predicted with a fair degree of certainty.
