por bajo ancho de banda

Large files take longer to download.

Por las políticas internas del Ministerio de Exteriores y de Cooperación, muchos de los archivos que recibimos no pasan el filtro de seguridad o se elimina el archivo adjunto.

à cause du débit de la connexion

I HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY TRAINING FROM YOUR OUTFIT AND ALSO LACK OF STATIONERY SUCH AS PAPERS

Depending on the location of UN agency server, some are very slow or not responsive at all.

Slow internet connection sometimes frustrates downloads.

May be overloaded net; or small capacity of the system; especially slow or no connectivity during the exam -sessions

internet speed is slow sometimes

takes more time

only sometimes with a large file if our internet connection is having problems...

Download problems are usually not associated with the size of a file.  File types and software updates (or lack of) and changes in browsers create temporary problems.

The bandwidth is inadequate

due to the limited bandwidth we have.

technical ca[avity/ connectivity

Too slow to download for large files

Sometimes, our connection in the server is quite slow.

Les procédures sont Occasionally longues

Sometimes there are problems with the internet connections.

Por problemas con el ancho de banda

At times the internet is so slow

It not successful

In Myanmar Internet connect is not very good and sometimes, downloading files takes time and cannot be fast.

Motivado a la velocidad de conexión

*  B/c of slow connectivity    * sometimes lack of electric power

WE HAVE NOT TRIED TO DOWNLOAD UN PUBLICATIONS

actuall,we have not paid our charges fee for five years so we have no access to printed nor online material.At the moment i will say we are at lost on what to do  to pay up our charges in other to start benefiting from UN depository..the current material we have now dates back to 2008.

Because We do not have a perfect Computer System and its Equipments.

Low speed of internet.

Nous ne l'avons pas encore fait par manque d'information à ce sujet

Since the connction is not so fast and since we don't have enough PCs we have difficulties to download files

We did two times and there was no problem, it was a book

Pas d'internet.

Actually the computers are too old and their memory is very limited . Beside the internet line is very slow

The fact is that for now all the United Nations publications are in hard copies in our library. The obvious reason is that internet facility and power supply is not very stable or reliable for now.

low bandwidth

Insuficiente ancho de banda.

Internet speed is insufficient

Slow connection

Limited bandwidth connectivity

Most of our ebook content is primarily designed to be accessed on a computer through a browser or a dedicated app for the PC.Some of our packages, e.g. Ebrary, have apps for certain mobile devices and ereaders. The common factor is that DRM is control from Adobe DRM software so the user must also sigh up for a free Adobe Digital Editions account and link the devices to that.Currently some our content can be either side-loaded or accessed  through an app for IOS (Ipad, Iphone), Android tablets and devices, Sony Readers, and (I'm pretty sure the Nooks).

A tricky quirk of the service is that if you are accessing the resource via IP authentication, which we do, then you should not use the logout link when you finish because this temporarily blocks authenticated IP access for anyone else from the same IP page - confuses users because it may mean they suddenly cannot get access to the full text.

Not all patrons find the ebooks easy to locate and use.  At time the digital statistics and data are difficult to navigate.

NA - but it is especially helpful that both OECD and WorldBank provide us with MARC records to ingest into our library catalog.

We are not subscribing these resources.

National Library is not the subscriber of them

La richesse des publications proposées par OCDE génère Occasionally du bruit dans les résultats. Le temps de réponse n’est pas toujours satisfaisant

Not applicable

NO ESTAMOS SUSCRITOS

We would like but due to our low bandwidth and poor connectivity, we have been disadvantage to these services but given the current upgrade to the fiber Optic Links from VSAT, we will take advantage of it and introduce most of our online services to our users/clients and general public that we serve. Thus we will subscribe to the WB eLibraryor OECD iLibrary and other UN Information Resources.Establish memberships to social netwiorks and provide econtents plus other online services.     

No contamos con suscripción directa a estos servicios pero si contamos con el acceso remoto a recursos digitales desde el Portal de la biblioteca electrónica del Ministerio de Ciencia y Tecnología de la Nación (MINCYT)y a bases de datos de accesos abiertos, utilizando internet.

WE DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO THE SERVICE

nous sommes abonnés à d'autres bases de données

The OECD iLibrary  is somewhat difficult to use for statistical downloads and customization of data selection

Limited search capability.

I do not use them

Subscription is too expensive.

No, porque en la biblioteca depositaria de la ONU nunca se nos ha propuesto.

NA

The advanced search function is not very precise.

OECD's content system is often very slow

Questions 24 & 25. I am unsure if we are an official subsriber and what that means; but we can access these sites. The OECD site is easier to navigate than the World Bank eLibrary, where there could be more user friendly access points and I have been unable to do a dedicated search for instance for a Policy Research Working Paper by its title.

The KU libraries did subscribe to these two digital libraries, but drop a couple years ago.  Therefore I am unable to comment on questoins 24-27.

There is the problem of identifying what is held in these libraries as they don't link to our catalogue.

We subscribe to World Bank Library, not the World Bank eLibrary. But we would like to subscribe to the World Bank eLibrary if you help on how to go about it.

Porque están en inglés y nosotros y nuestros usuarios hablamos español

N.A.

USER FRIENDLY PLATFORM IN ACCESS AND FAST CONNECTION TO THE RESOURCES. AGAIN ACCESS TO FULL TEXT E-BOOKS AND E-JOURNALS IN PDF ENABLES DOWNLOADS. CURRENCY OF INFORMATION ESPECIALLY ON DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES IN AFRICA ARE POPULAR. THE STATISTICAL AND FACTUAL INFORMATION MAKES OUR USERS ACCESS THE E-RESOURCES POPULAR.

I do not know,because I do not use these services

Nous n'avons souscrit à aucune de ces ressourcs

NA

Producto al poco ancho de banda y al no contar con el equipamiento requerido tenemos poco conocimiento al respecto

We rarely use for above services.

Until now there is no partenership with  OECD and World Bank e-Library . But we recieve the materals from both above mentioned  institution

WE ARE NOT YET A SUBSCRIBER OF WORLD BANK eLIBRARY AND OECD iLibrary

Low discoverability of material due to less than perfect organization of contents. Far too low server capacity relative to size of databases makes for very slow service.

Not subscribed

Not subscribing above databases(24, 25 above).

We do not subscribe to any of them

Because We do not have a Subscribe With any of These Services

Please assist, we are eager to know.

Our clients do not have access to these services.

Por el momento no nos hemos suscrito.

Nous sommes très peu informés sur ces ressources. par conséquent nous ne les avons jamais utilisé pour pouvoir apprécier
