Karin Grönvall

Karin Grönvall is National Librarian of Sweden. As such, she is responsible for the development of their services and access to the collections. The organisation also has a task from the Swedish government to promote and coordinate the work for open access to scholarly publications. The collections grow daily through digital and physical deliveries and they digitize as much as possible of the older collections. To gain access to this national research infrastructure is crucial for researchers, especially in the humanities and social sciences. They have a well-established data lab that collaborate with researchers for access to the collections as data to carry out TDM and to develop AI-models. Research methods develop rapidly in line with the digital possbilities and require them to continuously relate to and interpret the Copyright Act to be able to provide the services needed.

Wilhelm Widmark is the Library Director and Senior Adviser to the President on Open Science at Stockholm University. He is also the vice chair of the Bibsam consortia in Sweden. During negotiations with publishers, they try to have paragraphs in the contracts that hinder the use of TDM and AI on the licensed material. It is important that the consortias don´t sign away the researchers rights to work with the material. Widmark was active in the Liber Board when they advocated for a more flexible copyright system that would allow text and data mining to be used at its full potential.
