Rolling the Dice or Calculating a Bet? How to Decide Which OA Project(s) to Support

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Presenters at Charleston sessions have had much to say about open access (OA) publishing. Many examples of and advice about campus OA resolutions are available, the arguments in favor of OA are well rehearsed, and many projects vie for library and institutional dollars in an environment where APCs are astronomical and allocations for OA support compete with allocations for materials purchases. Increasingly, libraries are being asked to move beyond advocacy to funding OA initiatives. In this interactive session, we will address how librarians gain institutional and budgetary traction for and choose among OA publishing ventures. Session participants will gain insight into how panelists are managing OA selection and funding at their libraries, and will be encouraged to share their own views and experiences. Attendees can expect to learn more about how libraries make decisions to fund OA projects, how these decisions affect existing budget allocations, and how we handle the messaging to our stakeholders. The session is part of a research project that seeks to develop a typology of open access projects and a decision-making template for choosing among them. It is linked to a Lively Lunch during which participants will have the opportunity to workshop ideas for a library collections future in which most publications are open.
