How Do Libraries Make a Long Term, Substantial Commitment to Support OA Publishing?

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

Linked to "Rolling the Dice or Calculating a Bet? How to decide which OA project(s) to support," this session workshops a couple of related questions that bear on library operations in a possible future environment where most publications are open: 1) how do we model the transition of library budgets from purchasing content to supporting OA Publishing, and 2) OA as a collection development strategy--the practices of library collection development and management and the jobs associated with them and what they look like when most publications are OA. To prepare for the session, please see "Curating Collective Collections — Open Sesame: Collection Development at the Network Level", which appeared in the September 2016  (28:4, p. 87)  issue of Against the Grain.
