It is also the role of ELRA (and LDC) to make sure that researchers have access to the resources they need to carry out their research So, students who are prevented from doing so (because of the resource cost) should talk to us and I am sure we will find an efficient way to deal with that;

Many of us, including ELRA, are working toward this (as an example you may want to look at the work being carried out in the EC project META-NET (www.meta-net.eu) that aims at such purpose; Unfortunately, many resources will remain governed by the "market" conditions, despite all our efforts

Best regards Khalid P.S. Resources that are donated to ELRA for free (no royalties to be paid back to the owners) will be distributed to the community free of charge
